New documentary chronicles the US vs. John Lennon

Starting in the late 1960s, John Lennon stripped away his pop-star image to transform into an anti-war activist. This change brought on his famous bed-ins with wife Yoko Ono in protest of the Vietnam War and the song "Give Peace a Chance." Though this period in Lennon's life would forever cement his iconic legacy, the U.S. Government wasn't too happy with Lennon's newfound persona and tried every effort to silence him. This in-depth documentary by filmmakers David Leaf and John Scheinfeld chronicles a chapter in Lennon's life very few know.
