Matt Greenhalgh on Nowhere Boy

In the Telegraph, David Gritten interviews Matt Greenhalgh about writing Nowhere Boy (opening in the UK on 26th December).
"I read the book (by Lennon’s half-sister Julia Baird) and it wasn’t the story you expected,” Greenhalgh recalls.

“I felt it wasn’t even about John Lennon, it was about a boy searching for his mother. I thought the story could have worked even if the boy wasn’t John Lennon. But the fact it is (italics) John Lennon made it magnificent to me. I could just see it.”
