Quotes

Brian Epstein: I was surprised you brought up what you brought up just now. Why is it so awkward when we talk about it?
John Lennon: Don't know.
Brian Epstein: It puts me in a very awkward position. You see, I get the feeling I'm supposed to bring it up and then I'm damned for doing so.
John Lennon: I enjoy hearing about your conquests - this lorry driver, that docker.
Brian Epstein: Yes, well, that's all very well, but it's when it comes closer to home - I just don't know what to say when that happens.

Thought-provoking meditation on the relationship between Lennon and Epstein
15 July 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie explores the complex relationship between John Lennon and homosexual Beatles manager Brian Epstein. In April 1963, Lennon and Epstein took a trip to Barcelona together, and what may have happened there is the subject of this finely nuanced film. Epstein struggles with his desperate, hopeless love for Lennon, and the surly, sharp-witted and cruel Lennon is torn between needling him about it and relieving his suffering. Watching them spar in conversation is fascinating. Contrary to what it might sound like, the movie is not exploitative. Instead it is a meditation on the frequently tortured friendship between these two men. Very well done!
