Lennon Naked

Synopsis: In 1964 a reluctant John Lennon is persuaded by manager Brian Epstein to meet Freddie, the father who abandoned him 17 years earlier, with the press in attendance. The meeting is short and bitter. Three years later Epstein is dead and John invites Freddie to his mansion but again things turn sour, due to Freddie's drinking and insulting Mimi, the aunt who raised John. The Beatles set up Apple records but the press are hostile and Lennon's comment that 'we're more popular than Jesus' doesn't help. Rows with long-suffering wife Cynthia lead to marital breakdown and John's meeting Japanese performance artist Yoko Ono. Family history is repeated as Lennon leaves Cynthia and their son Julian for Ono, by whom he has a second son, Sean. In 1969 John returns his M.B.E. in protest at England's support for the Vietnam War while his stunts with Yoko Ono to promote peace alienate the press. Some months later he disbands the Beatles to the other members' annoyance and, after arguments with Paul McC

JOHN LENNON:
Okay? Yes, thank you.

(LOOK AT ME PLAYING)

# Look at me

# Who am I supposed to be?

# Who am I supposed to be?

# Who am I supposed to be?

# Look at me

# What am I supposed to be?

# What am I supposed to be?

# Look at me

# Oh, my love

# Who am I?

# Nobody else can see

# Just you and me

# Who are we?

# Oh, my love #

(CROWD CHEERING)

He tried to kidnap me

once before, you know, me dad.

So hang on to me braces or whatever.

-You don't wear braces, John.

-How do you know that?

I buy your suits, remember?

I might wear braces under me shirt,

where you can't see them.

And what would be the point of that?

They wouldn't attach.

They'd attach to me Y-fronts, Brian.

As a precaution against

your notoriously wandering hands

and other appendages.

(SIGHS) Do you have to be

so crude, John?

I might say these things, Brian,

you're the one who finds some

filthy navvy and actually does them.

I do no such thing.

(FANS SCREAMING)

Well, which one of us

is the crude one, eh?

-Oh, me, no doubt.

-FANS:
John!

-Where are we meeting?

-Secret location.

I used to wait for him at the docks.

In rain, I mean.

All been coming back to me.

Well, quite.

In those days he didn't want to know.

I used to ask the other seamen...

(IN FALSETTO) "Anyone seen Fred Lennon?

Anyone know where me dad is? "

-John, John, can I have a kiss?

-Kiss him instead.

He's never been kissed

by womankind or unkind.

Oh, please.

Okay, girls, sling your hook.

(GIRLS SCREAMING)

The meter's off, John,

anywhere you want, mate.

Secret location, please.

You're never tempted, John, you know?

Not when I've got my Brian.

Oh, like that, is it?

Very much so.

We're only going to Bernard Street,

but maybe you could go round

once or twice,

'cause we don't want to be noticed.

I want to shout our love

from the rooftops,

but he won't have it.

DRIVER:
Oh, well,

your secret's safe with me.

Very much appreciate that.

Seriously, John,

don't be promising him anything.

Do you understand what I'm saying, John?

Don't sign me fortune over to him.

Exactly.

Leave it where it is,

signed over to you.

I'm only ribbing you.

-DRIVER:
Where do you need, the hotel?

-Uh, yes, please.

John, John!

Would you sign this, for the wife?

-What's her name?

-Vanessa.

The necessary precautions

will need to be taken.

(CHUCKLES)

Thank you.

He's here now, is he?

John, all I want you to do

is see him and say hello,

and then you can walk out of here

and forget about him.

And then we'll have the papers

off our backs about it.

(SIGHS)

-Can I...?

-No.

He never even turned up,

you know, when me mum died.

John, as far as I understand it,

the man is barely more than a tramp.

He makes his living, such as it is,

washing dishes.

He's a heavy drinker

and he's spent time in jail.

You okay?

Beautiful, you know, me mother.

Feckless, but beautiful.

Auburn hair, vivacious.

Well, then I don't know

what she saw in him.

John?

So what do you want?

Gentlemen, good afternoon,

I'm Brian Epstein.

Now, we're here as arranged

but John does have a film to make,

so we'll have to be very brief.

-I don't want anything, John.

-PHOTOGRAPHER:
John, this way.

John, what Mr Lennon's

trying to say is...

Shut your mouth, you,

and sit down like you said you would.

I just wanted to see you, son,

that's all.

Papers are saying I'm looking to

sponge off you, but it's lies.

They're just saying that 'cause

I won't talk to them.

He's the papers.

I had to do that.

He wouldn't talk to me.

That's 'cause he looks after me,

which is more than you ever did.
