"George Harrison: Living in the Material World"

Martin Scorsese loved The Beatles, and this beautiful documentary is a loving tribute to George Harrison featuring never-before-seen footage of George's childhood, along with clips of his personal life. He was known as the quiet Beatle, but he liked to have fun, and was funny in his own way. After his worldwide success with The Beatles, Harrison was the band member who changed the most. He brought Eastern music and influence to The Beatles, and was devoted to Ravi Shanker, who became a lifelong friend and mentor. Harrison would go on to put together The Concert for Bangladesh, and raise millions for causes that he believed in.

From this documentary, fans will learn a lot about Harrison -- he loved gardening, started a movie studio and, later in life, was a devoted husband and father. Included are fascinating interviews with his wife Olivia and son Dhani, Yoko Ono, Jackie Stewart, members of Monty Python, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and many others.
