“Nowhere Boy” – the critically acclaimed film biopic about John Lennon’s teenage years which led to his musical career from the Quarrymen to his early relationship with Paul McCartney and George Harrison when the Beatles first set off to Hamburg is officially released on DVD now. The LIMITED EDITION contains the movie as well as the original 18-song soundtrack on CD, and a booklet featuring the story and lots of pictures from the movie.

Young JohnFeaturing the directorial debut of Sam Taylor-Wood and screenplay by Matt Greenhalgh (who wrote the script for the 2007 Joy Division film Control), the film recently closed the prestigious London Film Festival and to rapturous applause and rave reviews, prompting comparisons with the runaway success of Slumdog Millionaire.

A really essential addition to Beatles collections, if you want to know about John Lennon's real life before The Beatles became the "FAB 4".
It tells the story about how John at the age of fifteen meets his mother (again) and builds up a new relationship with her until she was killed in a traffic accident in 1958. It also tells how he learns to like and play the music that will make him famous.
This movie ends where the other 'must have' movie "Backbeat" begins.
To complete this story, also read Julia Baird's book "Imagine This".

This film features a wealth of British talent, including a career-defining performance from Aaron Johnson as the young John Lennon, plus outstanding performances from Kristin Scott Thomas as Aunt Mimi and Anne Marie Duff as John’s mother.  The film has received Yoko Ono’s blessing.
