NOWHERE BOY Finds Its Way Into My Heart

28 Jan

NOWHERE BOY is a neatly-made period piece focusing on John Lennon’s adolescence and the complex relationship between his free spirit Mother (Julia) and her more grounded sister (Mimi). Aaron Johnson (who played the lead in KICK ASS) does a fine job portraying young John; Kristen Scott Thomas is even better in the role of Mimi. The film’s music, as you might expect, is top notch.

A group of studio cats billed as The Nowhere Boys perform several early Beatles numbers and they more often than not do the songs justice. Watch this film and you’ll better understand the inner demons that haunted Lennon throughout his lifetime. Thumbs up on this one — nice little indy flick!
