The Lost Weekend: A Love Story

Thursday, April 13th at 7:15 pm

This new documentary explores the 18-month relationship (1973-1975) that John Lennon spent with May Pang, his Chinese American assistant turned lover (on Yoko Ono’s insistence). With May’s help, Lennon reunited with his son Julian and had his most artistically and commercially productive period post-Beatles — with the albums “Mind Games”, “Walls and Bridges” which included his only #1 Hit Single “Whatever Gets You Through the Night“, “Rock and Roll” and collaborated with Elton John, David Bowie, Harry Nilsson, Mick Jagger, and Ringo to name a few. Pang chronicles it all revisiting her younger self, a naïve 22-year old experiencing her first, unforgettable love. (1h 37m)

“The great triumph inherent in The Lost Weekend, and in Pang’s steadfast curation of John’s memory over the years, involves the celebration of Lennon’s enduring spirit.” – Kenneth Womack,

“A fascinating, revealing, and sometimes moving portrait of John Lennon unmoored, trying to find himself in a world that had caught up to him.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
