Thanks, it's nice to read something positive about this film. The hardcore fans can be critical sometimes.

I might add, though, that before The Beatles, Elvis started changing our views of race and gender.

Elvis wore mascara and pink lace shirts. His hair was also long for the time. And not only did he dance suggestively like a woman, he also sang and danced a like black person. In fact, he engaged fully with blacks during a time of prejudice and segregation. Blurring the lines between race and gender, Elvis helped set the stage for The Beatles.

I don't know if I should say this here, but I am currently writing a story on this for my school newspaper.

@Jojo McCartney 

 A paper on The Beatles helping blur the lines on race and struggles of the 1960s or do you mean the movie?

The movie, but considering that I am in a place where the Beatles are mainly unheard of (besides the teachers), it will have information about them in general as well. Hope that answers it.

Here is the rough draft. I am still pretty much a newbie on this forum even though it is almost my one year anniversary.
