“Backstage rock stories are a dime-a-dozen, but they’re usually well-rehearsed anecdotes told by hangers-on who’ve dined out on them for years. Kelly, on the other hand, hasn’t told these stories even to her family.” — The Hollywood Reporter

Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big. Though she had no concept of how far they would go, Freda had faith in The Beatles from the beginning, and The Beatles had faith in her. As the group’s devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded, and was witness to the evolution — advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges — of the greatest band in history. In Good Ol’ Freda, Freda tells her incredible stories for the first time in 50 years! One of few films with the support of the living Beatles and featuring original Beatles music, the film offers one of the only true insider perspectives on the beloved Fab Four that changed the world of music forever. Filmmakers Ryan White & Jessica Lawson in person, Q&A moderated by Michael Des Barres!
Dir. Ryan White, 2013, digital presentation, 86 min.

Good Ol’ Freda opens 9/6 at the Sundance Sunset Cinemas.
