John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy coming to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the film NOWHERE BOY, starring Aaron Johnson and Kristin Scott Thomas, will be coming to Blu-ray January 25, 2011. The story follows a young John Lennon and his tough home life and struggles that eventually led him and drove him to become a musician. The film had a limited theatrical release and took in just over $1.5 million.
Although I’m a huge Beatles fan, this didn’t look very appealing as a film. Aaron Johnson looked nothing like John Lennon in my opinion and quite frankly I don’t know if I’d want to see a childhood story of one part of my favorite rock group. If I wanted to learn more about The Beatles, I would pick up one of the many documentary anthologies that are out there. I’m much prefer to watch actual footage instead of watching someone trying to catch the essence of a legend. Special features include:
