The trailer for the teenage John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy is out. Our first impression? The classic 6th grade English lesson about “bildungsromans.” Boy is angsty with parental issues; boy finds outlet for angst; boy overcomes emotional conflicts; boy becomes man and founds the greatest band of all time, The Beatles. View the trailer after the jump and tell us if you think otherwise! Also pictured: the nearly prepubescent depiction of Paul McCartney.
John Lennon (Aaron Johnson): Not an eggman, not yet The Warlrus
Paul McCartney (Thomas Sangster): Sir Paul in the flesh
