“Joyous! A Hard Day’s Night is one of the great life-affirming landmarks of the movies.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the US scene with their Ed Sullivan appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day’s Night, in which the bandmates play wily, exuberant versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. This zany, tune-filled romp follows thirty-six hours in the lives of the Fab Four as they prepare for a big TV gig in London while looking for adventure, getting into trouble and trying to outrun hordes of their screaming fans! Directed with raucous, anything-goes energy by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of classic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” “Tell Me Why,” and “If I Fell,” A Hard Day’s Night, which reconceived the movie musical and paved the way for the modern music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining (and sing-able!) movies of all time. (Dir. by Richard Lester, 1964, UK, 87 mins., Not Rated)
