"When I was younger—so much younger than today…"- John Lennon (1965)
NOWHERE BOY captures and conveys the crucial formative years of John Lennon. For the first time on screen, it depicts the events and personal circumstances that led to the formation of the Beatles—and the underlying family currents that shaped and molded the creative and inspirational qualities of John Lennon. Qualitites that had a revolutionary impact on the world during the brief 40 years of life—and that continue to have immense effect 30 years after his death.
With a script and perspectives drawn from a variety of impeccable sources, and its authenticity endorsed by those who knew John Lennon best (including his childhood pals depicted in the movie), it is the first film to allow admirers to — in the words of one of Lennon's last and most personal songs — understand the little child inside the man.
