Nowhere Boy Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: John Lennon's childhood. Liverpool, 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen-year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John (Aaron Johnson): Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas), the buttoned-up aunt who raised him, and Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new
and exciting world of rock 'n' roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney (Thomas Brodie Sangster). Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice - and an icon explodes into the world.

Review:The early life of John Lennon is a topic of much fascination for any Beatles fan.  This biopic is based on Lennon's relationship with his mother, which was rocky at best and even clinically disturbing at times.  The fact remains that his mother is the one that directed him towards music and if it weren't for that influence the sequence of events that made the Beatles, and subsequently Lennon, what they were would not have happened.

This film captures the feel of the era and what was happening in Liverpool back in the 1950s-60s.  Its a great movie that is well-acted and has a lot of heart.  Any fan of Lennon, serious or casual, will enjoy it.  Is everything 100% factual?  Of course not..its a movie, but it certainly is fun.  The film looks fantastic on blu-ray, and we definately recommend it in this format for the best sound/pic combination.

Interest Range: John Lennon, The Beatles, Biopic
