(ANI): Late singer John Lennon"s wife Yoko Ono has allowed
filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood to use the Beatles member"s famous solo
track 'Mother" in her new film 'Nowhere Boy". The movie set to
release on December 26th follows the adolescent years of the
'Imagine" singer when he was living in bad terms with his mother.
Lennon was raised by his aunt Mimi after his mom Julia bequeathed
him at the age of five.
However, the relationship with his mother had improved over the
years until she finally died in a car accident when he was just 16.
Lennon had first released the song being used in the film on his
first solo album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band in 1970. Helmer of
the film is ecstatic that Ono has permitted her to use the
"She's given the rights to (the song) Mother which she''s never
given the rights to before. She wouldn''t have if she didn't like
the film. That''s really the stamp of approval," Sky News Online
quoted her as saying. She added: "The song Mother was essential for
the end of the film. Yoko had never granted the rights before so it
was nerve racking."
Taylor-Wood further revealed that both Ono and Lennon"s son Sean
had seen the movie. She said: "They both really loved it." The song
'Mother" expresses Lennon"s grief of losing his mother twice.
