      Audience Member A well-written movie, with some flaws, and gaps in the plot, the worst are the performances, but the actors look like their counterparts, so it is understandable why they were chosen, it's good to marathon with the other movies about The Beatles, and also documentaries, or as a prelude to the movie on the way, thank you. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member a great drama a fantastic story, this film it´s moving Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member pretty good movie acting isnt too bad Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member This TV movie is better than what I thought it would be. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought the movie was ok. But where is Pete Best??? They don't say anything about him. They could have made this movie a little better but I did enjoy it! I would have liked to see more of the other Beatles. Also they went from the Quarry Men to The Silver Beetles to The Beatles. I hope "Nowhere Boy" is a lot better. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Very enjoyable and it really got me when they played "Mr. Moonlight" in a scene ♥ I can't wager the precision of facts, but it makes sense at least =) For fans and non-fans (fans always enjoy the most, right?)
