Product Description

Amazon.ca

On 1970's "Mother," John Lennon sang, "You had me, but I never had you." Fine artist-turned-filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood delves into the story behind those words, starting with a 15-year-old Lennon (Kick-Ass's Aaron Johnson, a star in the making), who lives in Liverpool with his impish uncle George (David Threlfall) and imperious aunt Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas, all pin curls and British reserve). George's death spurs Lennon to seek out Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), his birth mother, who turns out to be surprisingly fun and flirtatious (their scenes together carry a subtle sexual tension). The mother of two daughters, Julia welcomes the opportunity to reconnect with her son, even if her common-law husband (David Morrissey, Duff's Is Anybody There? costar) doesn't share her enthusiasm. She introduces John to rock and roll and teaches him how to play the banjo--useful information when he switches to the guitar--but she also suffers from mood swings and can't always meet his emotional needs. Torn between the mother who raised him and the one who gave him life, John funnels his frustrations into music, forming the Quarrymen, but then he meets Paul McCartney (Bright Star's Thomas Sangster) and revamps the lineup to work in George Harrison and his art school colleague Stu Sutcliffe (whose biography formed the basis for Backbeat). As Lennon aficionados know, John's relationship with Julia didn't come to a happy end, but she would have a profound effect on his life--and provide the inspiration for this tenderhearted tribute. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

John Lennon had one Hell of a life. Talk about someone who saw and lived thru the peeks and vallies. This film is about his childhood. It basically ends where the other amazing Lennon bio pic starts (that would be backbeat). The writing in this film is excellent. The acting perfect and the subject matter fascinating. This is not about the Beatles getting together although Paul McCartney and George Harrison are represented in the film. This is mostly the story of Lennon's Aunt Mimi who raised him and his mother who, from everything I have read defiantly had some mental health issues. It's about a boy that feels like he has been abandoned by his parents and he is struggling to find out why. I don't want to go into too much detail. If your a fan you probably know his story already and if you arn't I don't want to wreak the film for you.
The film is a lot more enjoyable if you know a bit about Lennon and have seen some interveiws. Like in the film Where he gets his first guitar and the man says "it's guarantied not to split". Lennon mentions this sales pitch a few times in documentaries. Laughing at the fact that this was the best selling point of the Guitar. Whoever wrote this script really knew his Beatles info. Like George Harrison auditioning for Lennon on a bus. They even got the song right that he auditioned with.
But again I do want to stress you do not have to be a fan. This film is basically the story of the human spirit and how we have to pick our selves up and try again no matter what life throws at you and Lennon had a lot thrown at him.
If you want to hear a bit of what Lennon thought of his childhood and how it effected him pick up his "Plastic Ono Band" CD. Besides being a great album it's songs deal with a lot of this subject matter. Especially the song "Mother"!

Great gift from YOKO ONO on John's 70th Birthday. This is a great film about a great life. It brings the period and place (Liverpool in the 1950's) to life and it duly gives the teen life of John Lennon due credit. Well acted, well scripted and well done. A must see for every Beatles fan and especially Lennon fans.

I do love Beatle music but my oldest daughter loves them even more. I bought this for her. I did watch it and enjoyed it but I'm sure she'll love it even more.

Being a Beatles fan for many years I very much enjoyed this movie. It graphically showed the roots that lead to John Lennon becoming who he was. This was five stars all the way.

I saw this film with a friend of mine who is a Lennon's fan and he considered that the film reflects truthfully Lennon's early life. In my opinion, the performances are outstanding. Don't expect awesome soundtracks at all, the film is essentially biographic, but it definitely worth it

I saw this movie in the theatre earlier but I wanted to purchase one to keep.
I was glad that North American version became available. It shows the John Lennon"s sensitive and inner emotional part of his youth and relationships with his biological mother Julia, aunt Mimi( & Uncle George) and his childhood
memories with his parents and how he created a band and how he grew to be an iconic super stat in his future. It is the "must" movie if you love the Beatles and music. It is very impressive and a great movie.
I enjoy thoroughly.

This was a truly accurate representation of John Lennon's England as he was growing up. For lovers of the Beatles, it's a must see, simply to enjoy this version of how the Beatles began. The atmosphere, sets, costumes were well done. Julia and Mimi well cast. If you know nothing about John Lennon, this is a great place to start. And If you are a rabid fan, this movie will certainly enlighten you even more about what made this man tick.
