Sam Taylor Wood's directorial debut is a chronicle of John Lennon's teenage years. Set in 1950s Liverpool, the film tells the story of the spirited but troubled fifteen-year-old Lennon (Aaron Johnson), who finds himself caught in the crossfire between his formidable Aunt Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas) and his mother Julia (Anne-Marie Duff). When John meets fellow musician and kindred spirit Paul McCartney (Thomas Sangster), his creative genius at last finds an outlet and the most famous partnership in music is born. But just as John's new life begins, a dark truth from his past leads to a tragedy he will never escape.
