Nowhere Boy 10th anniversary screening for Clapperboard UK
A special 10th anniversary screening of John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy will raise funds for the Clapperboard UK charity.
BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh and Liverpool actor Josh Bolt – who played Pete Shotton in the film – will take part in a Q&A following the screening at Picturehouse at FACT on December 5.
They will be joined by other cast and crew members at the evening which will be chaired by Colin McKeown.
Nowhere Boy tells the story of the young and rebellious John Lennon and what led him to start his own band.
The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Lennon, Kristin Scott-Thomas as his Aunt Mimi, Anne-Marie Duff as Lennon’s mother Julia and David Morrissey as her partner Bobby Dykins.
Director Sam Taylor-Johnson said: “Nowhere Boy was and still is a significant movie for me both personally and professionally.
“You only get to make your first film once, after that the knowledge you gain, both enables you and disarms you of the sweet naivety you have when you step on set for the first time. I’m so very proud of this movie, what it brought to me and what it in turn gives to the audience.”
Josh Bolt added: “I can’t quite believe it’s been 10 years since we made Nowhere Boy, it’s such a wonderful film and was such a brilliant experience for me at 14 not to mention an incredible learning curve.”
Clapperboard UK Ltd, run by Maureen Sinclair, is non-profit making and over the past 15 years, worked successfully with more than one thousand young people between the ages of 7-26 across the North West bringing creativity into their lives through filmmaking.
Nowhere Boy is at Picturehouse at FACT on December 5 at 6pm. Tickets HERE
