There’s a biopic coming out soon which looks at the early life of John in Liverpool. It’s called Nowhere Boy and will be on general release from December 26th.

The film is directed by Sam Taylor-Wood and with a screenplay by Matt Greenhalgh (who wrote the script for the 2007 Joy Division film ‘Control’) is about Lennon’s childhood and adolescence. It also stars Kensington born David Morrisey. The movie is based on the book ‘Imagine This: Growing Up With My Brother John Lennon’ by his half-sister, Julia Baird.
