John Lennon biopic 'Nowhere Boy': Buzzy, but not Beatles-y

Posted on

Can you make a John Lennon biopic without any Beatles songs? Apparently. Sam Taylor Wood’s Nowhere Boy, which focuses on John’s childhood, does just that, and early buzz is that it’s great.

Star Aaron Johnson doesn’t look much like Lennon, but even weirder? The guy playing Paul is the little kid (now all grown up) from Love, Actually. I am so, so very old.

I’ve been an Anne-Marie “Mrs. James McAvoy” Duff fan since her days on Shameless, so even though this trailer doesn’t quite set my soul on fire, I’m holding out hope for the film.

What about you, PopWatchers?
