John Lennon (played by newcomer Aaron Johnson) 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. Faced with bringing it to an end, he learns the secret heartbreak of his past. But his mother gives him one great gift - music. A wayward boy finds his voice, and walks into The Beatles.

Very Good Biopic.

Nowhere Boy (2009) is a biopic about the early life of music legend John Lennon. The cast includes Aaron Johnson, Anne-Marie Duff, Kristin Scott Thomas and David Morrissey.
Johnson may not look much like Lennon but he manages to capture the spirit and attitude of the early Beatle. Johnson does a decent job with the accent and gives a career best performance.
There's great support from both Anne-Marie Duff as Lennon's enigmatic but distant mother and Kristin Scott Thomas as his emotionally restrained aunt. Thomas Sangster is also very good as a young Paul McCartney.
Debut director Sam Taylor-Wood also deserves much credit. She manages to get great performances out of her cast and a couple of scenes highlight Taylor-Wood's artistic visual sensibilities.
The Blu-Ray looks and sounds very good. There's some interesting documentaries and a very insightful director's commentary to be enjoyed.
