Nowhere Boy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I saw this the other night. If you love the Beatles like I do, it will leave you wanting more of the story & appreciative of understanding where John Lennon came from as it is a story of a teenage JL & the formation of the Beatles...the BACK-story if you will, cause you probably, like me, already know the rest.
If you have ever lost someone or grew up with divorced parents or just a fkd up family, you will appreciate how John uses those factors & some other cultural influences, (hey like ELVIS & the conformist English way of life) to transform his pain & anger into one of most creative music groups of the the last 50 years. There are moments in the film that shot me in the heart so don't think that since you're a tough guy you will escape the emotion of this film. I think that if you are human, it will be difficult to do.
Another film I saw years ago was this...
Again if you love the Beatles, this movie is a great tribute & a fun story constructed with their songs.
