Has anyone else seen ‘Nowhere Boy’? It tells the story of John Lennon’s early life being raised by his Aunt and Uncle, his love of Rock & Roll and forming his first band. Kristin Scott Thomas is great as his Aunt Mimi and Aaron Johnson is remarkable as John. After seeing the film I looked up his IMDB profile and saw that Johnson had also played the title roll in ‘Kick-Ass’ - I totally didn’t recognize him. Johnson and Thomas Brodie Sangster (Paul McCartney) apparently did their own singing in the film.
I enjoyed it very much, even if as a long time Beatle fan I was already familiar with Lennon’s life story.
