^ Maybe. Everyone said the same when Val Kilmer got to play Jim Morrison, but he ended up perfect. "Paul" looks okay to me. Babyfaced and gangly should do it.
I heard the tail end of a radio interview with the director. She knows she'll never please Beatle fans. She said it was exceptionally hard to decide whose "truth" was more accurate than other's "truths"
Gangly is totally wrong for Paul, IMO. If anything, he was plump as a teenager.
I don't know, I guess it could turn out to be a good film, but I'm afraid the look of the actors will be distracting to me. On the bright side, I adore Kristin Scott Thomas and I think she's perfectly cast as Mimi.
On the whole, I'm afraid this is going to turn out as another "Backbeat" which I loathed, but I'll give it a try.
