Nowhere Boy follows charismatic 15-year-old John Lennon (Aaron Johnson) who, raised by his aunt Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas) since he was a young boy, is suddenly reunited with his mother, Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), which ignites a bitter battle between the two sisters for John's affections. Along the way, John inherits his mother's love of music and befriends fellow Liverpool lad Paul McCartney (Thomas Sangster) in this biopic of the music icon's formative years.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    There are so many ways in which Nowhere Boy, an emotionally raw and yet raucous, rockin' riff on John Lennon's turbulent teenage years, is such an entertaining piece of nostalgia.

  • 50

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    It's a pleasant-enough creation story to revisit, one weighted down by melodrama and lifted up by some rocking tunes.

  • 50

    Variety Leslie Felperin

    A respectable but surprisingly conventional feature-debut effort from Brit artist-turned-helmer Sam Taylor-Wood.
