A TERRIFIC FILM: INSIGHTFUL AND MOVING – Entertainment Weekly

Imagine John Lennon’s childhood… A lonely teenager, curious and sharp, growing up in the shattered city of Liverpool. Two incredible women clash for his love. Mimi (Kristen Scott Thomas), the formidable aunt who raised him and Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), the spirited mother who gave him up. Yearning for a normal family, John (Aaron Johnson) escapes into music. His fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the young Paul McCartney. But just as John’s new life begins, the truth about his past leads to a tragedy he would never escape.
