Nowhere Boy

Growing up in Liverpool in 1955, and raised by his aunt and late uncle, John is a smart, spirited, but directionless, teen who skips school, steals records, and is told he’s going nowhere. Having brought rock music into the “house of Tchaikovsky,” John widens the rift with Aunt Mimi when he seeks out his estranged mother, to whom he forms an immediate attachment. Full of energy and sexuality, his mother encourages John’s interest in music, inflaming the rivalry with her sister, Mimi. In opening the door to a painful past, John seeks refuge in music—a journey that leads to The Beatles. [Synopsis courtesy of Sundance Film Festival]

Is Anybody There?

In his follow up to last year’s “Boy A,” John Crowley returns to the world of a young boy, fashioning a film of a very different kind. Infusing his new work with the childish naïveté of a precocious and curious lad named Edward – played by “Son of Rambow’s” Bill Milner – Crowley enters this terrain with the same ease that was evident in his earlier work. But while “Boy A” was a study of a young ex-criminal, the protagonist of “Is There Anybody There?” is younger and more guileless. Although his interests are indeed uncommon, they are those of a boy as opposed to a haunted teenager. [Synopsis courtesy of the Toronto International Film Festival]
