Nowhere Boy succeeds because its creators never wallow in sanctimony, keep contrivances to a minimum and has a lead actor who evolves his character rather than imitates.

More love triangle than musical, the effective and often sweet Nowhere Boy offers a sense of the time and tension that produced John Lennon.

The acting all round is pretty good, but the story itself is given to a sense of drift, as if the film itself doesn't know any better than Lennon what it wants.

A passable drama, and might make a nice double feature with Backbeat.

Fascinating...fills in a lot of blank spaces in the Beatles history we already knew.

Taylor-Wood has specialized in video installations and off-kilter portraits, and it was tempting to hope that her take on Lennon would unsettle and provoke. Instead, she stays resolutely on-kilter, as if awed into numbness by her subject.

Nowhere Boy is a poignant reminder that before the world was at his command, John Lennon was a bit like you and me.

The content is there but the form is a Xerox copy of every celebrity coming-of-age tale you've heard and seen before.

This portrait of a Beatle as a young man also gives filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood, working on a thoughtful script by Matt Greenhalgh, creative room to manoeuvre, introducing us to John just as he and rock 'n' roll discover one another.

It might not have what Beatles fans are expecting from a film about the young John Lennon, but it remains an interesting portrait of the early days of the future legend and is worth seeking out.

Although he doesn't look much like Lennon, Johnson captures that essence perfectly; the future icon is here a confused, hurt boy.
