A lost key and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark – so begins one of the great romances of all opera. In his depiction of the tender and ultimately tragic love between Mimì and Rodolfo, Puccini achieved an immediacy, warmth and humanity that have rarely been equalled.

A charming comic drama inspired by the true story of a high school English teacher who drove across Spain in 1966 to meet his idol John Lennon in hopes of clarifying some lyrics he couldn’t quite understand. On the way, he picks up two runaway teenagers — a pregnant girl fleeing a convent, and a boy escaping his dictatorial father.

“This small gem offers a lovely evocation of Spain as well as a touching tribute to an unforgettable moment in time when the Beatles seemed to offer brand new possibilities, the idea that strawberry fields might indeed go on forever.”Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
