FLICK U: NOWHERE BOY
Every gay man can appreciate a love store between a boy and his mother . . . and his other mother.
The debut feature film of British artist-turn-director Sam Taylor Wood made this stiff up lip quiver on more than one occasion-- a tremendous feat to say the least, one accomplished by a privileged few. "Nowhere Boy" covers the early life of John Lennon from 1955 to 1960, the period when Lennon formed his first band "The Quarrymen". Check out the movie website for an in depth survey of the film and its history. Only a visual artist like Taylor Wood could put something together as carefully crafted as this. The movie is actually much better than the following preview would suggest. I highly recommend a trip to your local art house. Catch it while you can.
