|San Francisco Chronicle Mick LaSalle To watch Nowhere Boy is to appreciate anew both the anger that drove Lennon and the strength of character it took for him to overcome it.|
|Austin Chronicle Marjorie Baumgarten Nowhere Boy reveals the magnitude of the good women behind the grand icon.|
|Chicago Reader J.R. Jones The maternal triangle is pretty well handled too, giving a good sense of where Lennon came by all that exuberance and melancholy.|
|Slate Dana Stevens The baby-faced Thomas Sangster nearly steals the show in the much smaller role of Paul McCartney.|
|USA Today Claudia Puig It paints a complex picture of strained familial relations and a poignant look at the wounds inflicted on a sensitive soul by an unreliable parent.|
|Movieline Michelle Orange Although this is a film about the influential women in Lennon's life, it succeeds equally in its evocation of the family Lennon built among his boyhood mates.|
|Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern The script, adapted by Matt Greenhalgh from a memoir by Lennon's half-sister, Julia Baird, is flagrantly Oedipal; almost every scene between John and his mother is sexually charged. The curse is taken off most of these encounters by Anne-Marie Duff's eloquent work in the mother's role.|
|Arizona Republic Bill Goodykoontz It's a measure of how good a film Nowhere Boy is that it would be compelling even if it were the story of the formative years of a boy named Joe Brown.|
