While the tales of the band's spectacular rise create a genial mood, the film feels superficial.

[Gives] insight into a rare, innocent time in rock history when a scrap of pillowcase that cradled a mop-top singer or an autographed photo were all fans needed to feel close to their idols.

Although this music documentary has some historic value, it aims to entertain -- and succeeds, largely because its subject is a natural on camera.

For any hard-core Beatles fan, this is essential stuff - and for anyone who follows pop culture, it's rather bittersweet.

The sweet-faced Kelly is a lovely and humble storyteller, and her enduring affection for John, Paul, George and "Richie" is palpable.

Don't look for scoops on Yoko or the band's breakup, but it's hard not to smile at the mop-top nostalgia.

White's revelation-free, nostalgia massage of a film works the archivals with genuine fondness.

White's film is a love letter not just to Kelly and the Beatles, but also to postwar working-class Liverpool.

Music documentaries don't get more inessential than Good Ol' Freda, a Kickstarter-funded, not-quite-profile of Freda Kelly, The Beatles' longtime secretary.
