NS “Too Late for Goodbyes” 歌手, 59, shared his thoughts on the film for the first time in a recent episode of comedian ケビン・ニーロン‘s web series Hiking with Kevin, and revealed that he wasn’t exactly fond of the twist.

フィルム, directed by Danny Boyle, tells the story of a struggling musician whose life is turned upside down when he suddenly becomes one of just a few people in the world who remember the music of the Beatles.
After passing their classic tunes off as his own, he achieves international stardom—and at the end of the film, ends up seeking advice from an 80-year-old John Lennon, portrayed by an actor and aged using CGI. In a world without the Beatles, he was never killed in 1980, and instead lived a long, peaceful life in a seaside home.
“I didn’t get—it wasn’t necessary for me, I don’t think,” Julian Lennon told Nealon. “And it was just weird.”
Boyle knew the scene would be polarizing, と言った USAトゥデイ upon the film’s release that British people call it a “Marmite scene” なぜなら “it divides people very clearly.”
まだ, he said the film was a hit with Ringo Starr and his wife Barbara Bach, as well as the family of late Beatle George Harrison.
“We sent everyone the finished film, and we got a lovely message from Ringo and Barbara, and a lovely message back from Olivia [ハリソン], George’s widow. I don’t think Paul’s seen the film yet but he saw and liked the trailer,” Boyle said. “Somebody’s life was robbed and movies can give him back to us, just for a moment. And I love that about movies.”
Julian Lennon, その間, spoke to PEOPLE in September ahead of the release of his latest album ジュード, and said that he is in the best place he’s ever been in life after years of tumult.
“I’m good all the way down the line these days,” 彼は言った. “I’d always hoped I would get here. How long is the journey going to be? That was the question… It’s finding that place of peace and I think I’ve achieved that.”
