There's an interview with Freda in the New York Times.

I went to Allison Anders' Don't Knock the Rock festival screening of the film today, and, yeah, everything they said is true - not a dry eye in the house. The emcee for the Q&A with the crew, Michael Des Barres, practically broke down.

I won't spoil anything - the film will be available on iTunes on the 6th and on DVD with extras on December 3. But it's so clear why Freda was regarded so highly and treated like family. She's A Woman of great warmth and integrity, and we're very lucky she decided to share her story. And it's an extraordinary film for humanizing The Beatles and, especially, Brian Epstein.

There'll be a Reddit Ask Me Anything with the director and Freda on Thursday the 5th at 2pm EST: http://www.reddit.com/r/AMA

Edit: Questions and answers are all here.

^^ Thanks, Emily!

A great review of the movie by Jude Southerland Kessler. I particularly like this paragraph:

Go see this film, I beg you. Take your children to see it. The world right now lacks role models. Freda IS one. She embodies the humility that John and all the Beatles had at the core, in their hearts.

The movie will be making its UK debut at the BFI London Film Festival the weekend of Oct. 19-20. They're working on getting a UK distributor. [x-posted to the news thread]

Great interview  at the Washingtonian with the director Ryan White.

And the film will be playing in DC until the 26th.
