    The story of The Beatles just keeps on giving. In the past few years we've had Backbeat, The Killing Of John Lennon and Across The Universe; Nowhere Boy, which depicts John Lennon's teenage years right up to his departure for Hamburg, shows that there is still some stories to be rooted out. Despite insights into a young Lennon's life that will interest the casual fan, it's the performances that make Nowhere Boy memorable

    • Currently 5/5 Stars.


    A good drama and in the end it doesn't matter wether it's the early life of John Lennon or of an other unknown boy. This movie is more about the tangled relationship between a boy, his kother who abandonned him and his aunt who raised him. Anne Mary Duff delivers a brilliant performance as John Lennon's mother.

    A really good drama about the early life of John Lennon with some tremendous performances from all the main cast especially Anne-Marie Duff. While perhaps a bit too slow to start, it becomes compelling viewing by the middle of the film.
