Directed by conceptual artist Sam Taylor-Wood, whose previous interest in celebrity included a video portrait of David Beckham sleeping, Nowhere Boy is a biopic of John Lennon’s early life. Focusing on his pre-Beatles stardom, the film charts the complex relationship between the legendary man himself (played by Aaron Johnson), his staid and respectable Aunt Mimi (Kristen Scott-Thomas) and his free-spirited mother Julia (Anne-Marie Duff).
Not really what you’d expect from the undisputed King Of Surrealism – David Lynch’s next project won’t include a) a monstrous, spitting foetus child; b) a topsy-turvy road trip or c) Laura Dern, topless.
