What’s It About?
Set to the backdrop of The Beatles music, this is the the story of two lovers, their friends and their family caught up in the turmoil of the 1960’s.

Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
This movie is a mixed bag. The overall story line is paper thin and exists only to move the film from one Beatles cover to the next. The movie basically boils down to a series of music videos featuring reimagined versions of classic Beatles songs. Some of those new versions are really, really bad; yet others are genuinely terrific — so good that I admit I purchased the soundtrack. The movie goes back and forth from awful to awesome multiple times.

Final Grade: C
