Midas Man

From an original story, Midas Man charts the life of a man who often struggled to find his place in the world. Yet who is today universally recognised as the creator of the blueprint for music artist management. The figure with a finger on the very pulse of the Swinging Sixties.

Born into an established Jewish family in Liverpool and gay at a time when homosexuality was illegal, his early life was peppered with expulsions from school, dismissal from the army and failed attempts at acting. Against all odds, Brian Epstein discovered he had a golden talent for forecasting hit records...

His discovery of a promising new combo known as The Beatles, in a dank and dark cellar called The Cavern became a culturally iconic moment. He went on to find and manage a string of acts, from Gerry and the Pacemakers to Cilla Black and Billy J Kramer. He also promoted the legends he didn’t manage. Bands like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Pink Floyd, Procol Harum and Cream all performed (often sharing the same Sunday night bill) at The Saville Theatre, which Brian leased in 1965.

Midas Man will chart Brian’s tumultuous life, through formative years to his unimaginable success as a manager and the ensuing chaos which came with handling the biggest music acts the world had ever heard and seen.

The film spans a period of extraordinary cultural change and convulsion. From desolate streets of wartime Liverpool to the psychedelic haze of Abbey Road.

This is the true story of one of the world’s most significant outsiders. The man The Beatles called ‘One of us.’ Brian Epstein.
