Synopsis

NOWHERE BOY, the debut feature of Sam Taylor-Wood, tells the never seen before story of John Lennon's childhood. Imagine John Lennons childhood - A spirited teenager, curious, sharp and funny, growing up in the war shattered city of Liverpool in dreary post-war Britain. Two extraordinary sisters tussle for his love - Mimi, the formidable aunt who raised him from the age of 5 and Julia, the spirited mother who gave him up to Mimis care. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into art and the new music flooding in from the US. His fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the young Paul McCartney. But just as Johns new life begins, the truth about his past leads to a tragedy he would never escape.
