  • Aren't we supposed to be in the sky with diamonds?

This Beatles music fest is set back in the 1960s, when a British lad pops over to the USA. He hooks up with an American student and his sister, and he and the girl soon have a thing going on. However the brother gets drafted off to Vietnam, and his ladylove switches to protesting the war, as does the rest of the movie. The plot is mainly an excuse to showcase new interpretations of classic Beatles numbers, which some reviewers liked and others didn't.
