When Lenin Met Lennon

The Beatles never set foot in the Soviet Union, and their music was officially banned there throughout their life as a band. But the four lads from Liverpool had an enormous impact on a generation of Soviet youth – turning them into cultural exiles in their own country and fatally weakening the foundation of socialist rule.That's the premise of Leslie Woodhead's documentary How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin, an insightful and nostalgic look at Soviet Beatlemania featuring recollections from Fab Four fans ranging from Russian rock stars to Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov.
