When he busted out Yesterday (this is early going so not much of a spoiler) the delivery was so spot on and moving I did get something in my eye. 

 

Everytime I see McCartney, people start bawlin' when he plays that song. That one and "Give Peace a Chance". What gives?

"Give Peace a Chance".

I was there the first time he played it at King's Dock in Liverpool in 1990. There was talk that he was going to play something as a tribute to John. We didn't know what and Strawberry Fields / Help seemed reasonable enough, but it was a big surprise when he went into Give Peace A Chance.

I enjoyed the movie. it was cute. Still like 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand' better, but none-the-less. Surprised at the rather youngish crowd. I felt old. There is something wrong when you look around you and you feel old....at a movie about the music of the the Beatles. One particular scene did me in emotionally & I had to walk out early. It was toward the end I think, so I missed the last few minutes of the film I gather. I was taken-aback by how much the scene hit me. I'll catch the very end when it comes out on disc. I was in no condition to stay. I ran outside into the dismal heat, got to the car & let it out for what seemed like a good 15 minutes or so. For a moment, I felt pretty silly toward myself. It's as if I'd just seen 'Schindler's List' or something. Silly, idn't it? Chalk it up to it being something so meaningful.....to me anyway.

One other thing not related to the film...In the endless stream of previews, they showed the trailer for 'Blinded by the Light'...& yes....it was unmistakeable...There was BRUUUUUcing coming from somewhere in the back of the theater. People clapping after the trailer....& one last BRUUUUUCE! The hall erupted in laughter....

A good movie...A bittersweet ending. If only. Thing is, if only's can really suck sometimes.

That scene hit me hard too, Dan. It was very well done. I thought of you when I saw it.  

Loads of 'old' people in the audience when I saw it.

Why wouldn't you believe that I thought the film was very good … or the others? I was here in the 50s and 60s and adored them, especially John. :D

PS It's not THAT good … it's silly. Even the bit we're talking about. However, it's touching.

Oh there were older folks there for sure, but it seemed like millennials outnumbered us, & a good number of college-aged kids as well. I guess that's a good thing. Keeps the music alive from generation to generation.

I am always pleased when younger people still relate to the music. 

I remember when my son and our two godsons were about 19/20, we came home from a meal out with the godsons' parents to find the three of them listening to Revolver - it made us very happy!

Just saw it last night.  Loved it.  Yup, I blubbered at that scene.  I had purposely avoid knowing anything before I went, so... 

Was thinking of @JustDan throughout!  

Oh, ALL old peeps in the theater :D

I knew when we were all telling you to go, you weren't going to handle that part very well. I got a bit choked up also. 

And then to ruin the moment, when we got out of the theater I had to explain the whole part to my wife.

Yesterday (!) my great nephew had a singing lesson (we are staying with them this week) and he was learning Let it Be -  very impressed:)

Mr J tried to persuade him to see Yesterday at the cinema though, but he chose Men in Black instead.:(

I'm going to go see this Monday with my aunt (she's five years older than me so will have grown up with The Beatles in the sixties!)

Just back fron seeing this film, really "enjoyed"it and glad I made the effort to see it, in the pub afterwards someone asked me what I though and I siad I found it really emotional...WHAT they said..but this music has been a part of me for so long and as anyone who knows will understand the username I use and know where my affections lie and there were many many flies around. Great idea and Danny Boyle is a genious (the sixth Beatle), will not spoil it for others but the exchange between two of the actors near the end was priceless and pure Danny Boyle (amongst others)!!!!....Go see, enjoy and let your heart flow.

I saw this late this afternoon. I really enjoyed it and the scene Dan had to leave after is powerful and even I got a little watery in the eyes. I'd watch this one again.

Also, I knew the director's name but wasn't really that familiar with the names of his movies. I just read that he did Slumdog Millionaire, a movie I really like.

Absolutely, I think you need to see it again to catch all that happens during all the up's and downs of the movies. There is always something else there.

Going to see this again this afternoon with my sister, who hasn't seen it yet. I think it will be quite interesting for me to compare it with Blinded by the Light. 

I did ask my sister which one she would rather see and she chose Yesterday.:(!

I really enjoyed seeing it for a second time. 'The scene' worked better for me this time, as I knew it was coming it made much more sense. My sister loved it but has promised to see BBTL as she thought trailer looked good!  Cinema very cheap in Leeds - £4.90 whatever time of day:)
