Trailer Watch: Nowhere Boy trailer

I’m a huge Beatles fan, so I’m fairly excited for this.

Here’s the score on the critically-acclaimed directorial debut of British filmmaker Sam Taylor Wood:

Imagine… John Lennon’s childhood. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John: Mimi, the buttoned-up Aunt who raised him, and Julia, the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n’ roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice–and an icon explodes into the world.

I’m interested to see this, partially because of my love for The Beatles, but also because I’m intrigued by the fact that Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass)is playing Lennon. And it looks like he pulls it off quite well. I’m a little disappointed that the John meets Paul scene shows up in the trailer, but I think that alone will get me or any music lover into the theater.

Nominated for four BAFTAs, Nowhere Boy–which is out now on DVD in the U.K.–invades the U.S. October 8, courtesy of the Weinstein Company.
