NOWHERE BOY March 6, 2011

     NOWHERE BOY is a movie about the life of a very young John Lennon. It’s a quiet, touching and interesting look at his early influences, his introduction to music, and two sisters who loved him — one gave birth to him and the other raised him.
     I would especially recommend this movie to music buffs, Beatles fans, and those who love nostalgia. At times, Aaron Johnson, the star of this film, bears a strikingly eerie resemblance to Lennon. Thomas Brodie Sangster of Nannie McPhee fame plays a young Paul McCartney, and although he does play guitar, he had to learn to play left-handed for this role. The vintage music is great, especially Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ I PUT A SPELL ON YOU, but, unfortunately, the audience is only given a tiny taste of any of the songs. If you yet aren’t convinced to watch it, be assured it’s worth a peek for the very old images of the Beatles that are shown at the end of the movie.

     The Lycan Librarian is off the cold meds now, and will be returning to her “normal” lifestyle. The next review on this blog will be for — a book !!!
