Nowhere Boy

The Extraordinary Untold Story Of John Lennon.


Nowhere Boy
This biopic takes at look at the early life of Beatles legend John Lennon. His mom was not suitable mother material, so he was raised by her sister, who was rather prim and proper. When a teenager, he learned that his mom lived nearby, and restarted the relationship with her. He took up music to impress her, and soon hooked up with Paul and George, leading to them forming their first band. The rest, as they say, is history.

Tomatometer quote iconDon't expect any musical insights, but this look at John Lennon's early life benefits from its restrained, low-key approach and some fine acting from Aaron Johnson.
