"Director Robert Zemeckis' feature debut truly encapsulates that time."
A comedy chronicling 24 hours in the lives of six teenagers from Maplewood, New Jersey, who descend on Manhattan the day The Beatles premiered on the "Ed Sullivan Show," February 8, 1964. Each has a personal agenda: Grace Corrigan is looking for her big break as a photographer; Rosie Petrofsky is the quintessential Beatles fan, and Janice Goldman and Tony Smerko, would do anything to see the performance end in disaster.
