First Photos & Poster from John Lennon Biopic Nowhere Boy
Nowhere Boy is a film that I've actually been looking forward to for quite a while. It may be because I love The Beatles or it may be because I'm actually excited to see a good musician biopic about a band I like. We covered the casting late last year and now the film is premiering at the London Film Festival this week. As part of that premiere, the first shots of Aaron Johnson as John Lennon as well as the official poster (or at least the official festival poster) have popped up online courtesy of The Playlist and Zimbio. Not only do the photos look great, but I really love the design of this poster. If only I could catch the premiere in London.
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 visual artist Sam Taylor Wood and is being distributed by The Weinstein Company early next year. Stay tuned for updates!
