Discover the untold story of the man behind English rock band The Beatles in the Sam Taylor-Wood-directed feature film.
The movie that centers around John Lennon before The Beatles era, "Nowhere Boy", has got its trailer made available for viewing pleasure. Found via Tom Leavy's YouTube account, the promo video offers first look at Aaron Johnson as Lennon and Thomas Sangster as Lennon's fellow Beatle, Paul McCartney.
Based on the book "Imagine This: Growing Up With My Brother John Lennon" by Lennon's half sister Julia Baird, the biopic tells the story of young Lennon. It follows his teenage year and his first steps to stardom. The story is said to take the highlight on the influence his aunt Mimi and his mother Julia had on his early life, and explores his friendship with McCartney.
Scripted by Matt Greenhalgh, "Nowhere Boy" has Kristin Scott Thomas playing Lennon's aunt and Anne-Marie Duff portraying Lennon's mother. It will mark the directorial debut of director Sam Taylor-Wood. The film itself will be premiered October 29 at the closing night of the London Film Festival, before opening wide in the U.K. on December 25, as listed in IMDb.com. It is yet to have a U.S. release date.
