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 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

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 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.

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.

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.

John avant Hambourg. La soeur de sa mère a la garde de John qui lui est assez fasciné par sa mère biologique et par sa vie un peu marginale. Elle l'initie à la musique. Il passe de chez l'une à chez l'autre, incapable de se décider entre une femme qui a une vie rangée (et disons normale) et une marginale. Il aime faire les 400 coups. Bonne analyse psychologique
