"A Life in the Day" is about the life of Brian Epstein, who discovered and managed the Beatles from 1961 through 1967, when he died of a drug overdose at 32. Producers will try to secure certain Beatles songs, but the movie really is about the formation of the band. Epstein, who sold records from his father's appliance store in Liverpool, heard the Beatles on his lunch break at the Cavern Club and became relentless in his pursuit of a record deal for the quartet. Everybody turned down the band, even though Brian promised they would become bigger than Elvis, and he finally got George Martin at EMI to change his mind and give them an audition.
