The Quarrymen and Special Sneak Preview of "Nowhere Boy"
A film by Sam Taylor-Wood
Starring Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas, David Threlfall, Josh Bolt, Ophelia Lovibond
Imagineâ¦ John Lennon's teenage years. Liverpool 1955. A smart and troubled fifteen-year-old is hungry for experience and a desire to escape the complexities of his family life and the petty-minded mentality of post-war Britain. In a family full of secrets, two strong women clash over John (Aaron Johnson): Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), the free-spirited mother who for personal reasons gave John away in his infancyâ"and her sister Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas), the buttoned-up Aunt who stepped in and raised John. John grasps at music as his escape path and in particular the brand-new import from Americaâ"rock 'n' roll. The fledgling musician finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney (Thomas Brodie Sangster) and forms The Quarrymen â" the band that becomes The Beatles. Just as John is embarking on his new life, tragedy strikes. But John channels his anger into creativity and uses his personal pain for his music. The story ends as the young man leaves home and heads to Hamburg with his band. The rest truly is historyâ¦
This special advanced screening of NOWHERE BOY will feature a live performance by the original members of The Quarrymen, the band that became The Beatles!
