Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed

Summary: It’s 1966, and John Lennon is on his way to Spain to shoot his first, and only, non-musical role in How I Won the War.  Antonio, played brilliantly by Javier Cámara, (I’m So Excited) is a school teacher in the small Spanish town of Albacete, who uses Beatles lyrics to teach his students English. When Antonio learns that Lennon is visiting, he decides to embark on a journey to meet his hero. In his travels, he comes across two runaways, Juanjo (Francesc Colomer), a 16 year old boy longing to escape his suffocating father, and Belén (Natalia de Molina), a pregnant 20 year old reluctantly planning a return home to her mother.

Driving across Spain in Atonio’s Fiat, the trio will learn more about themselves than they ever imagined, while pulling on your deepest heartstrings.
