I. AM. IN. LOVE.
In 2009 when Nowhere Boy was released I read about it but never got round to seeing it. I'd pretty much forgotten about it until last weekend when my friend Lauren brought it over one night. So yeah.... I'm in love.
Decades wise, the 50s/60s have always been my favourite. I love the clothes and music and generally look of things and just urgh take me there please! So yeah, aesthetics wise, this film is perfect and god I haven't even started on the story line yet (if we can call it that, I mean it's real so um idk).
Although I've listened to and enjoyed the Beatles before, I've never really got them. Like, yeah they're good, but really? I have always thought they were a bit... over appreciated, let's just say. (This is something I've never admitted before; I mean I don't know about other countries but in England they're musical gods)
I TAKE IT ALL BACK.
This film broke my heart (I sobbed for a long while after it had finished, not even chocolate ice cream could soothe me, this was a pretty big deal) and inspired me so so so so so much. It made me want to sing and dance and listen and play every Beatles song there ever was for eternity so I've decided that's what I'm going to do this summer so yup.
I know this is a shit review/post but basically this film MESSED WITH MY EMOTIONS (so much so I can't write them down properly) so please just go and see this film if you haven't, and if this hasn't swayed you yet, I'll let Aaron's pretty face do the rest, I mean.....
God. Can we just not?
