Nowhere Boy (2009)
The movie depicts Lennon as having a wild child mother who introduced him to the music of African Americans but who was not really able to be a parent to him, whereas Lennon's aunt was a buttoned down woman of post WWII England who provided structure, boundaries and reliability for him. Between the two they molded him into the man who would shake up the world of popular rock music. The tone is modest and sympathetic.
