Backbeat

Backbeat

An early chapter in the life of the Beatles is explored in this fascinating drama set in the dreary rathskellers of Hamburg in the early 1960s where the pre-fame Beatles have gone to solidify their act. At that point they were the Fab Five, including bass player Stuart Sutcliffe (Stephen Dorf) who wasn’t up to the others and seemed to be around only because he was John Lennon’s (Ian Hart) best pal. The movie hints that their relationship may have been more than platonic. Director Iain Softley focuses on Sutcliffe and his dilemma whether to stay with the lads or set out on his own as a painter. An arty German photographer (Sheryl Lee) pushes him to fulfill his own destiny. Songs are performed by Beatles’ impersonators who sound like the real deal.

(UK, 100 minutes, 1993, 35 mm)
