John Lennon: 'Nowhere Boy' to 'Nowhere Man'

The World
John Lennon would have turned 70 this weekend. A movie coming out Friday looks back fifty-some years ago, before anyone knew Lennon's name, when he was simply a teenager growing up in Liverpool, England. The film, called "Nowhere Boy," focuses on John Lennon's youth: growing up, discovering music, becoming reacquainted with his estranged mother and being raised by his fiercely protective Aunt Mimi. The movie stars Kristin Scott Thomas (as Aunt Mimi) and Aaron Johnson (as young John Lennon). Both join us in studio to talk about the film, John Lennon, Liverpool, and the Beatles.
