Julia trying to seduce John was just creepy. The problem with historical films is they tell a different history than the one I lived through. Probably would have been a good movie for young teens if they had less cussing and had left out the sex scene in the park. As is, not really something I'd show the under 17 crowd.

Quite surprised by the reviews. Credible acting, but the characters of John Lennon and Paul McCartney neither look nor sound (what happened to the Liverpool accent?) like the famous musicians they are portraying. John had a tough childhood in some ways, but could have been a lot worse. It does not shed a lot of light on their history before fame.

What a great insight into that "NOWHERE" Lennon Boy. Surrounded by weird people and everything from Tchaikovsky to Elvis ... no wonder John Lennon had to write songs about his turbulent life!

I like the Beatles. I like biopics. I love movies that incorporate music. So I had to give this movie a go, and I am soooo glad I did!

The acting was phenomenal, really. Aaron Johnson played Lennon, I wasn't expecting him to be so GOOD! I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for his movies from now on. Everyone else was particularly good as well. I definitely enjoyed it, and have already recommended it to friends. Can easily see myself watching again.
