More about LENNONYC
Following the breakup of the Beatles, the film follows John Lennon and Yoko Ono as they moved to Manhattan in 1971, where Lennon sought to escape the mayhem of the Beatles era and focus on his family and private life. At the same time, he created some of the most acclaimed songs and albums of his career. He also remained highly active in the anti-war movement as well as numerous other progressive political causes, and, along with Ono, became beloved fixtures in neighborhood restaurants, at Central Park, at sports events and at political demonstrations.
With unprecedented and exclusive cooperation from Yoko Ono, access to never-before seen material from the Lennon archives, conversations with his closest confidants – Yoko, Elton John, David Geffen, the photographer Bob Gruen – and rare recordings of Lennon’s greatest solo hits including “Mind Games”, “Whatever Gets You Through the Night”, and “Imagine”, LENNON NYC is singularly poised to tell John Lennon’s story as it has never been told before – and as it will never be told again.
Run Time: 115 minutes, plus extras
