An Interactive Program for Adults and Older Teens – Not Suitable for Children

Independent and international films delight and challenge the imagination and inform the artistic experience. However, an understanding of their historic, cultural and national context can enhance the impact of their imaginative richness.

 

Barry Dempster, Founder and Programmer of Southlake Cinemania, a film series showing titles from the Toronto Festival of International Films, will lead the post-film discussions and illuminate their creative importance to the art of cinema.

Nowhere Boy 2010 (United Kingdom)

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

6:00 to 8:30 pm, Room A/B - 2nd Floor

 

Imagine...John Lennon's childhood. Liverpool, 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen-year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John (Aaron Johnson): Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas), the buttoned-up aunt who raised him, and Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock 'n' roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney (Thomas Brodie Sangster). Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice - and an icon explodes into the world.  Directed by Sam Taylor Wood.  Starring Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Anne-Marie Duff.
