I honestly can't decide yet if this film will be good or not. I hope it's good, but I'm very skeptical. I actually have the script and read it. I think it has potential, but any film about a Beatle is a hard one to do. It has to be prepared for a fair amount of criticism.
The Oscar chances seem unlikely, though the Weinstein Company is distributing it in the United States. As soon as I see it, you'll know for sure.
