This gritty, hard-driving and energetic drama chronicling the Beatles' ascendance to fame in Hamburg's club circuit centers on the true story of "fifth Beatle" Stu Sutcliffe and his close relationship with John Lennon. Driven by art rather than music, Sutcliffe ultimately must choose between his true passion and following his bandmates to certain superstardom. Stephen Dorff, Ian Hart and Sheryl Lee star.
