Anyone else watching? My mum told me to as she'd seen it and loved it. Tbh I didn't know any of the early history of JL? Poor lad.

It was good. He had a hard life. He was much better-looking in this film though...

crazynanna Mon 03-Oct-11 00:40:12

Agree LeBof...they flopped in the looks dept with the guy who played Paul though smile

that was thomas sangster crazy - feather boy??
i thought it was v similar to control - then saw it had the same writer

I missed the beginning -did it exo´plain why he wasn´t with his mum?

But then it seemed to be a bit mum=fun Mimi=no fun, so I gave up as presumably she was doing her best for him.

yh it did about half way through.
his mum and dad split and they gave him the choice who to live with - when he was about 5.
he chose his dad but as he had already been pushed between the both of them mimi decided to 'kidnap' him.

I suppose none of the "main players" are around to give the story so a lot of it is interpretation & hearsay.

mycatsaysach Mon 03-Oct-11 14:15:34

was supposed to be based on younger sisters' memoir

diddl Mon 03-Oct-11 14:17:08

His mother or a different sister?

mycatsaysach Mon 03-Oct-11 14:27:32

his younger half sister julia - although i haven't read the book and it is not credited in the film

Curiousmama Mon 03-Oct-11 19:13:54

I'd forgotten about his mum sad Enjoyed movie though did have a little weep at the end especially when he said Mimi was both parent and guardian.

it was good. i was hooked.
he was rather good looking but the paul mccartney actor, he surely was just too young

slartybartfast Mon 03-Oct-11 20:06:37

and me too, a little watering of the eyes sad

Curiousmama Mon 03-Oct-11 20:50:23

Curiousmama Mon 03-Oct-11 20:51:24

Curiousmama Mon 03-Oct-11 20:52:34
