Nowhere Boy Home Video Release
The feature film and additional exclusive bonus features boast a combined running time of more than 2 ½ hours of entertainment.
Nowhere Boy is the directorial debut of conceptual film artist Sam Taylor-Wood. The film recreates John Lennon’s teenage years and his introduction to music – from first band The Quarrymen - to his early relationship with Paul McCartney and George Harrison, all of which culminates in the formation of The Beatles and their historic trip to Hamburg. But all that is just a canvas surrounding the core story of the movie, which is all about Lennon's relationship with two women: the one who gave birth to him - his mother Julia - and the one who brought him up - his aunt Mimi. A key scene in the movie is when the five year old John is forced to choose between going away to New Zealand with his father - or to stay home in Liverpool with his mother. In the end, he didn't get either one.
Nowhere Boy’s DVD & Blu-ray releases are jam-packed with exclusive bonus features, including:
* Director Commentary with Sam Taylor-Wood

* “The re-creation of Lennon and the Quarrymen” Featurette
