Recently I've been watching some of "Birth of the Beatles" online (as much as Yahoo Video offers, anyway), and I was wondering what people thought of the portrayal of Brian Epstein in that. I certainly think it could be argued that they played him a little over-the-top. He came across as very highly strung, although I gather that the man himself was highly strung at times.
On the whole I felt that though the portrayal was exaggerated, he still came across as a very sympathetic character within the movie. And I suppose that is the important thing.
Do you agree? Disagree? I'd love to hear opinions, as I'm very interested in the way that historical characters are depicted in films.
