Announcing a new Meetup for Boston International/Arthouse Movie Meetup Group!

What: Nowhere Boy

When: Saturday, October 23,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Kendall Theater
1 Kendall Square
Cambridge, MA 02139

This was suggested on the message board, and I'd been thinking about this film since I first saw the previews over the summer. For any John Lennon or Beatles fans this should be good. And the cast looks great.

About Nowhere Boy:
Imagine... John Lennon's childhood. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year-old (Aaron Johnson as Lennon) is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John: Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas), the buttoned-up Aunt who raised him, and Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n' roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney (Thomas Sangster). Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice?and an icon explodes into the world. Directed by Sam Taylor-Wood.

"The power of Nowhere Boy is that, as directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, it captures how John Lennon's deeply sordid family life toyed with his soul by not letting him know who he was. When he's drawn to the bad-boy catharsis of rock & roll, it gives him more than an outlet ? it gives him an identity, a role." Grade: A- --- Entertainment Weekly

After the film we'll go to an area restaurant for discussion.

Hope to see you there!
