NOWHERE BOY CATCH IT ( A ) Based upon the early life of Mr. John Lennon, this movie is truly wonderful best thing about the movie is it's more of a British family drama then changed into totally music extravaganza AarOn Johnson is undoubtedly the Best young Actor around His portrayal of john Lennon' s is just incredible from sweetness, to witness and cockiness he grapes perfectly on all parts of John Lennon's behavior. Other incredible performance in the movie is by Anne-Marie Duff... She is outstanding, she is so good that I actually forgot that I m watching a movie and she is playing her role... You just want to see her previous work that good she is in this movie...Kristin Scott Thomas gave another great performance... All these three actors make the movie believable and if John Lennon would have been alive today... must be proud of them... In the end 1st time Director Sam Taylor-Wood did an excellent job with the story and movie. I still think about the movie and want to watch all over again.
