Nowhere Boy
Screened in December 2010
Director: Sam Taylor-Wood. Cast: Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Anne-Marie Duff, David Threlfall, David Morrissey, Josh Bolt, Ophelia Lovibond, Thomas Sangster, Sam Bell, Andrew Buchan, Alex Ambrose, Colin Tierney. Screenplay: Matt Greenhalgh (based on the memoir by Julia Baird).
Twitter Capsule: Moderate vibrancy in the images, but payoffs feel pre-given, lacking in stakes. Too shellacked to evoke lust for music.
