Mimi and young John Lennon

Movies About Beatles (2009)

We’ll cover all the best Beatles movies in the weeks ahead, but let’s start with this one: “Nowhere Boy,” a UK flick of high quality about the troubled early life of John Lennon.

The Guardian newspaper reviewed it thus: director and artist Sam Taylor-Wood surprises us with an old-fashioned, affecting film exploring John’s early years, based on a biography written by Lennon’s half-sister, Julia Baird.

Actor Aaron Johnson plays Lennon, Anne-Marie Duff as Julia Lennon (John’s mother) and Kristin Scott-Thomas portrays Mimi Smith. Duff and Scott-Thomas were nominated for awards: the movie was nominated for four British Academy Film Awards and has an impressive 79% RottenTomatoes.com rating.
