"Nowhere Boy" is a new film directed by new and up and coming director Sam Taylor Wood. It tells the little known story of legendary musician John Lennon's early life and his forming of the rock-n-roll band The Quarrymen (the precursor to The Beatles).
Starring as John Lennon we have, what looks to be, a very excellent performance by Aaron Johnson (who most recently starred in the lack-luster and very stale Kick-A**). From the looks of it he gets Lennon's iconic tone and Liverpool accent down perfectly.
A lot of the movie focuses on his relationship between him and his aunt and him and his estranged mother. Another big part of it is of course the rock-n-roll, and what led John Lennon to start a band that would eventually lead to the band that changed music forever...The Beatles.
The movie includes Lennon meeting a young Paul McCartney played by Thomas Sangster and their friendship and also the meeting of George Harrison played by Sam Bell.
The movie looks like a good drama with talented actors, among the supporting cast is the always great Kristin Scott Thomas. The movie looks both funny and moving. Its set to come out October 8th of this year and if your like me and love music and especially love The Beatles then I think this is definitely one to look out for.
