Nowhere Boy

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

John Lennon’s iconic round metal specs are familiar to us all but in the 2009 film Nowhere Boy you will see him portrayed in some very different but equally powerful glasses.  The film,  directed by Sam Taylor-Wood and starring Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas and Ophelia Lovibond, chronicles John Lennon’s childhood and teen years of the 1950’s.

Lennon’s isn’t the only character to sport vintage 50’s frames.  His mother, as played by Anne-Marie Duff, also wears some fantastic upswept sunglasses.
