The Hours and Times

The Hours and Times is a 1991 drama film written and directed by Christopher Münch. Starring David Angus and Ian Hart, it is a fictionalized account of what might have happened during a real holiday taken by John Lennon and The Beatles' manager Brian Epstein in 1963. Hart would again play Lennon in the film Backbeat.

Director Christopher Münch originally saw The Hours and Times as a "DIY exercise," not expecting the film to secure any distribution. He wrote the script over a few weeks in early 1988 and traveled to England to cast it that spring.


The Hours and Times won the Special Jury Recognition award at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival. It was also nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the same festival.
