What is The Beatles: Get Back About
Directed by three-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, The Beatles: Get Back is an intimate look into the band’s 1969 recording sessions for Let It Be, a pivotal moment in music history. From the creative process to their first live concert in over two years, it is a time that strains their formidable friendships as they try to write 14 new songs under the pressure of 21 days. The original material features over 60 hours of unseen footage of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1969, and more than 150 hours of unheard audio, most of which has been in a vault for over 50 years. The footage has now been brilliantly restored, looking almost as if it was shot yesterday. The Beatles: Get Back shows how humor, friendship, and creative genius kept the band together as long as it did and producing under pressure. With the cracks beginning to show, some of their most iconic songs are composed in this time, even as it leads up to what will be their last live performance as a group, an unannounced rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row, and their final two albums, Abbey Road and Let It Be.
