This docu-feature, derived from more than 200 hours of footage from John Lennon's vast personal archives, is a most revealing and fascinating look at his public and private life. Narrated by recordings of Lennon's own voice, the film depicts his unusual childhood in Liverpool, his early beginnings as a rock performer and his role as a key figure in The Beatles. It also follows his post-Beatles life, his marriage with Yoko Ono and the birth of his second son, Sean. Roger Ebert calls this "a touching and revealing film", while WWOR-TV says it is "a definite look at the real John Lennon: complex, brilliant and witty...as haunting, remarkable and memorable as his musical legacy". From legendary producer David Wolper ("Roots", "This is Elvis", "The Thorn Birds").
