Hate the title, but love the premise. Lennon (my idol) had a pretty torturous childhood. Both Lennon & McCartney lost their mother's in their teens; I remember reading how John told Paul, "I'd go off me head if my mother was to die." & then she did & he did. Throw in John's biting sarcastic wit & it should make for a very powerful film.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
