Director Ron Howard (RUSH, APOLLO 13) takes a look back at the years when the Beatles were still a touring band, from their early performances in Europe in 1963 to their decision in 1966 to quit playing publicly in order to focus on their work in the studio. This documentary features archival footage of the Beatles' legendary concerts, as well as interviews with surviving band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and famous fans such as Whoopi Goldberg, Sigourney Weaver, and Elvis Costello.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"Ron Howard is a studio craftsman who specializes in crowd-pleasing entertainment...THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK focuses on the band during their crowd-pleasing years: the era between 1962 and 1966 when they toured the world, delivering smiling and effervescent performances..."
A.V. Club (15 Sep 2016, )
Hollywood Reporter
"THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK supplies a month-by-month account of the band's brief tenure as a live band. Predictably full of great performing footage and incorporating new interviews with the too-few surviving witnesses..."
John DeFore (16 Aug 2016, )
Los Angeles Times
"It's no surprise that a documentary on the Beatles and their music is a treat, but the fact that it is not an unalloyed pleasure is a bit unexpected."
Kenneth Turan (15 Sep 2016, )
New York Times
"[J]ust try watching it without smiling.....Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the surviving Beatles, provide fresh interviews, and John Lennon and George Harrison are heard in clips, all of them reflecting on what it was like to ride the beast."
Neil Genzlinger (15 Sep 2016, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "[The film] catches the exhilarating kick of Beatlemania as the band toured 15 countries from 1963 to 1966....The documentary rightly keeps coming back to the music and the band's delight in making it."
Peter Travers (15 Sep 2016, )
