Overview

By 1969, eight years after John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr started playing together, The Beatles were well established as the biggest and most influential music group in history. With expectations high, creating the band's next album seemed like an insurmountable task, but Let It Be would soon prove to be another classic.

Peter Jackson is an Academy Award-winning director, best known for his work on the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. The Beatles: Get Back compiles footage originally filmed for Michael Lindsay-Hogg's ill-fated 1970 documentary Let It Be about the recording of the album. This new interpretation shows the full story behind the project and how the world's biggest band struggled to write an album while having their every move scrutinized by the cameras.
