Movie Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - 9/10 by Owen Gleiberman By the end of Nowhere Boy, you'll feel you know John Lennon better than you ever did.
USA Today - 9/10 by 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.
Arizona Republic - 9/10 by 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.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert We learn that the emotional roller coaster of his formative years probably contributed to the complexity of his lyrics.
Combustible Celluloid - 9/10 by Jeffrey M. Anderson It cares more about the characters and their relationships than it does the factual or historical context of it all.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 9/10 by Joe Williams Nowhere Boy is too astutely written and directed to go to predictably melodramatic extremes.
New York Post - 9/10 by Kyle Smith It's strange enough to be raised by your aunt. For young John Lennon, things get stranger still when he finds himself dating his mother.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI) - 8/10 by Jeff Meyers Handsomely composed minor-key effort
Rolling Stone - 8/10 by Peter Travers Johnson doesn't resemble, much less embody, Lennon, but he does catch his distinctive glint of mischief tinged with pain. Duff and Scott Thomas are both exceptional, revealing how John's relationship with these two clashing sisters marked his character.
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by Peter Rainer It's effective but schematic storytelling.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Carrie Rickey Taylor-Wood stresses the universals rather than the specifics of John's youth. So don't go expecting a Fab Four origin story. The word Beatles is never uttered. But do go.
Miami Herald - 8/10 by Rene Rodriguez Nowhere Boy is great at depicting the birth of Lennon's love for his art.
