(USA/UK/2013—directed by Ryan White)

Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big. Though she had no concept of how far they would go, Freda had faith in The Beatles from the beginning, and The Beatles had faith in her. History notes that The Beatles were together for 10 years, but Freda Kelly worked for them for 11. As the Beatles' secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded; she was witness to the evolution – advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges – of what may be the greatest band in history. In this enchanting new documentary, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years. One of few films with the support of the living Beatles and featuring original Beatles music, the film offers an insider perspective on the band that changed the music industry – and popular culture – forever. (88 minutes)

“Demure and intimate.” –Peter Debruge, Variety
