Nowhere Boy

I borrowed a DVD of this movie from the library yesterday and really enjoyed it. Based on a memoir by John Lennon's half-sister, it tells the heartbreaking story of the teenage Lennon as he has a whirlwind relationship with the unstable mother he barely knew.

As a teenage in the early 70s I listened to the "White Album" over and over and often wondered about the song "Julia" - which is hauntingly beautiful. I didn't know it was about his mother - Julia. Later I heard some of this story, but wasn't aware it was so tragic.

Nowhere Boy is a great little film. You'll especially enjoy if if you're a fan of the Beatles, and even if you're not.
