Although the soundtrack includes some of Lennon’s songs this movie is not about his song-writing career. Instead it’s about his post-Beatles involvement in the peace movement back in the ‘70’s. Not surprising, this caused him some difficulties with the authorities with many people displeased by his unconventional methods.

To many the movie will be an overview of those times. To some it will be an insight to what really happened.

for some strong language, violent images and drug references.
