The story of the Beatles pre Beatle -mania days.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Backbeat [DVD]  (DVD)
This is the story of "the fifth Beatle" - Stuart Sufcliffe - who was friends with John Lennon. Stuart was in on the Beatles earlier concerts and was prepared to play second fiddle to the group until they went to Hamburg and he saw and fell in love with a German girl and so leaves the biggest rock and roll band in the world. That basically is the story of "Backbeat" which contains some great Beatles songs and also has a powerful story line. The actors portray the "Fab Four" very well and praise must be given to Stephen Dorff who plays Stuart and Ian Hart who portrays the young John Lennon. If you are a Beatles fan and have not seen this then get it and watch this excellent film. If you are not a fan and wonder what all the fuss is about then this is a good introduction to them Either way. Buy it and enjoy it.
