Disclaimer: This petition is made by fans of Cynthia Lennon and The Beatles. We are not filmmakers, but simply fans with a dream we hope will come true. Thank you.
There are some stories that are left untold. Some are forgotten, while others are ignored. In the case of Cynthia Lennon, her story has always been pushed to the side. For years, fans of Cynthia have wanted and waited for her story to be given the attention it deserves. For too long have her fans waited. Until now.
The often under appreciated 1st wife of John Lennon was an amazing and brave human being. She experienced one of the greatest privileges: to be a firsthand eyewitness to the birth of the greatest rock n' roll band ever. For 10 years, she was the loving and loyal girlfriend/wife to the most beloved Beatle. She new him before he was a famous rockstar, and was close friends with the other Beatles during their Liverpool days.
Although Yoko Ono is often seen as the important wife of John Lennon, Cynthia's role in John's life was just as important, perhaps more. She was his first love, the mother of his eldest son (Julian Lennon), and was close to every member of the band. She was there when they first formed. She was there when they made it big in America. She was there when St. Pepper was created. And it was her tragic breakup with John that lead to the creation of one of the bands most amazing hits, "Hey Jude".
In her autobiographical book, "John", Cynthia highlights pivotal events that happened in John's life, and allows us to see another side to the legendary musician. Unlike other writers, who only knew one side of John, Cynthia knew him better than anyone. In her book, we see both sides to the legend. He was a brilliant musician, but also a broken soul. He had a capacity to love, but also a capacity to hurt others deeply. Yet despite all the suffering she endured by his side, Cynthia never stopped loving John, even after their divorce and his eventual death. Her love for him surpassed whatever anger and hatred she could ever hold against him.
This petition is to help make a dream become a reality. Many Cynthia Lennon fans (including myself) have wanted to see her story on the big screen. Many Beatle fans have waited for a proper movie about the beloved Liverpool band. By signing this petition, we can promote and make possible the chance for such a movie to exist. The Beatles are such an important part of culture and music, yet they've never been given a proper film that shows their impact. Cynthia's book is the perfect catalyst for such a movie.
My goal for this petition is to reach as many signatures as possible, and then send this petition into the hands of Julian Lennon, John and Cynthia Lennon's son. More than any other person, Julian has loved and honored his mother for her strength and devotion. To see that so many fans want his mother's story to be told would be very touching for him, and there is no other person who could make this dream a reality more than Julian.
Cynthia's story shares a message that The Beatles sang throughout their career: all you need is love. In her life, Cynthia loved John and she loved her son. Her love is what allowed her to see some of the most amazing events in music history, and her love gave her the strength to continue on with or without her husband. Her love was constant and unconditional, and it reflects the peace that John Lennon always shared to his fans. Please help spread that message of love, and help make Cynthia's story become more than a dream. Thank you!
