SYNOPSIS:
Award-winning documentarian Adrian Wills' new film captures one of those rare and beautiful times in history when two of the greatest groups of artists to ever live come together to create one outstanding show. Fueled by a dream from George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil director Guy Laliberte comes "Love," a visual and musical circus spectacular. Beautifully documented through breathtaking rehearsal footage and often hilarious interviews with all parties involved (including the two surviving Beatles), "All Together Now" tells the tale of passion and perspiration that goes into preparing the latest Cirque show. Laliberte, in consultation with The Beatles' estate, works to build a beautiful new piece of work through a series of innovative ideas that include hiring longtime Beatles producer Sir George Martin to create a new soundtrack limited to mixing and matching recordings only from the original sessions. The results are undeniably enjoyable, and "All Together Now" is a film for every Beatles or circus fan alive today. (Mike Lerman)
