John Lennon is an ordinary 15 year old boy on the streets of Liverpool. Funny, smart, naughty, a real edge to him. But life is not simple for John – he grew up in a family of secrets and was raised by his Aunt Mimi from the age of five. When he is suddenly reacquainted with his mother, Julia, they form an unbreakable bond. A bitter war rages between the two sisters for John’s love. But his mother gives him one great gift – music. A wayward boy finds his voice, and walks into The Beatles. Nowhere Boy is directed by Sam Taylor Wood and is being distributed by The Weinstein Company early next year
I am still not sure whether Johnson is the right fit for a young Lennon but it all sounds very promising.
