On what might have been John Lennon's 70th birthday, two new films commemorate the musician.

Two new films about John Lennon will be released to celebrate the musician’s birthday, 9 October. Nowhere Boy is a British biopic that examines Lennon’s childhood and early musical influences. LENNONYC, on the other hand, studies Lennon during the 1970s, when he lived in New York City; it will be shown on PBS on 22 November.
