Loosely based on the early life of John lennon,the flick provides some insight into the soul and personality of the future superstar.
Great biography and period picture.
interesting story of John Lennon's early years
I really liked this movie. How John Lennon became a man he is. I love the 50's and the 60's.
interesting story of john lennon, learn a lot of stuff i didn't already know
A true story that made me have a little less respect for John. Too much self pitty, for someone with loads of talent.
This was a fascinating look at Lennon's young years and the formation of the Beatles with portrayal's of each member's teenaged personna. Thoroughly enjoyable and memorable.
Greatly entertaining. An interesting concept of life before fame.
Must be a Beatles fan to enjoy this movie
Extremely well done film. Even if not previously aware of John Lennon's formative years, the film provides a riveting storyline that would be of interest to the viewer.
lots of early history but not as much Beatles music as you might hope
Anything with a Beatles theme is sure to be entertaining; Thumbs up!
good for Beatles fans but not as much popular Beatles as I was hoping for
Beautiful movie! John wass destined to be a star and an inspiration!
This movie does seem to portray Lennon's childhood. Well Done. If you're Beatles fan go and see this.
A box office disappointment, it's nonetheless one of the best films eligible this year. I'd love to see Anne-Marie Duff mentioned this year for her great performance. Kristin Scott Thomas and Aaron Johnson, as well as the rest of the cast, are a joy to watch.
Really enjoyed this movie especialy around his 70 birthday. Learned a lot about John's tragic younger years. Both my friend and I shed tears which says how emotional the movie affected us
Very good emotional tale about his younger years. Aaron Johnson does a great portrayl.
Inspirational, poetic and sad at the same time. Great casting.
It was interesting to learn about Lennon's early life, but it was disappointing that we didn't hear more of the music that made the Beatles popular. I found that I did not like the young John Lennon. It is a relationship movie and would not appeal to someone wanting something a little more exciting.
I would like to rate this movie. But it missed coming to Winnipeg.
Excellent depiction of a little known part of John Lennon's life. Kristin Scott Thomas and Anne Marie Duff were fantastic and Aaron Johnson was very good in a very difficult role. The director, Sam Taylor-Wood, did a marvelous job capturing the time and the emotional turmoil in the main characters lives. Really neat to see how John, Paul and George got together to start the path to music history.
