The Linda McCartney Story Reviews
Gary Bakwell did another good performance as Paul (first time was in Backbeat (1994) in Paul's younger Beatles days).
A couple of cringe-worthy moments, but overall definately worth watching at least once!
It's a made for tv movie, so I wasn't expecting much.
Elizabeth Mitchell is really good, but most of the acting is crap.
It paints a very one-sided picture of the Beatles' split-up, making John Lennon look like a drunken bum and Paul look like a wounded child.
It was good to know a bit more about Linda herself, as well as her and Paul's children.
Damn these TV movies.
Photographer, Beatles wife, tambourine player, purveyor of vegetarian entrees: Linda McCartney led an undeniably remarkable life. The Linda McCartney Story, based on the book -Linda McCartney: The Biography, attempts to present this life in all its glory. Scion of the George Eastman photography dynasty, McCartney is first shown as Linda Eastman, aspiring rock photographer. Flirting her way around the transatlantic rock scene with the likes of Jim Morrison and Mick Jagger, she eventually meets Paul McCartney during the heyday of mid-'60s Beatlemania. Thirty years of marriage, the Beatles' break-up, tambourine playing with Wings, and McCartney's ultimately unsuccessful battle with breast cancer follow, illustrating, over the course of 120 minutes, a life lived with both strength and aplomb.
