It seems there isn't a thread for this excellent film about John's teen years, so I thought I would start one
I have to say, regardless of my Beatles interest, that Nowhere Boy is a superb film, which perfectly evokes the era and England of the time, and every detail is superbly done down to the crockery used for mealtimes and decor of the houses. It's also exceptionally well casted and acted, and I have recommended it to several non-Beatles obsessives ( ) who have equally enjoyed it.
It is also very true to the reality of John's life from what I know of it, and shows how this troubled yet talented young man was "pushed over the edge" into a kind of madness that may have spawned his genius (it's a thin line) by the death of the mother he had only just reunited with.
Who else has seen Nowhere Boy and what are your thoughts?
As an additional piece of trivia, the 19-year-old actor who played the young John ended up getting together wit the 42-year-old director - they are now married with two children!
