As a Beatles fan I am still waiting for the definitive Beatles biopic. There have been several films which individually chronicle different eras throughout the band's time but there's never been a comprehensive A-Z of the Fab Four (other than the anthology collection). Nowhere Boy tells of John Lennon's adolescent years before he discovered rock & roll to forming the Quarrymen and meeting McCartney & Harrison. The film focus's on John's relationship with his mother and aunt which was complex, tumultuous and influential. From the history I have read these relationships are not portrayed as accurately as they could have been, but overall it's a decent drama. The performances are solid and the movie bares with it a heavy forecast... knowing the significance of it all made it all the more compelling. The film concludes as the band travel to Hamburg and (as they say) the rest is history... it makes sense to finish on that note but the Beatle-fan in me wanted to keep following them.
