Spring, 1963: a young John Lennon, on the cusp of full-fledged stardom, took a four-day holiday with Beatles manager Brian Epstein to Barcelona. Despite their differing backgrounds—Lennon working class and straight, Epstein a cosmopolitan homosexual—their relationship flourished on this short sojourn. But what really happened? A fascinating speculative fiction filmed in stunning black-and-white, Munch’s lost classic of the New Queer Cinema returns in a new restoration, its revelations about friendship, fame, and sexuality as timely as ever.

The best American indie in many, many years… startlingly intelligent, graceful, and moving.”
