5 Points Theatre The 2010 Jacksonville Film Festival may be over but that doesn’t mean you can’t find some great films to watch this month. The 5 Points has some very interesting selections. Nov 1-4 HOWL Starring James Franco in a career-defining performance as Allen Ginsberg, Howl is the story of how the young poet’s seminal work broke down societal barriers in the face of an infamous public obscenity trial. In his famously confessional style, Ginsberg – poet, counter-culture icon, and chronicler of the Beat Generation – recounts the road trips, love affairs, and search for personal liberation that led to Howl, the most timeless work of his career. Nov 5-18 NOWHERE BOY Imagine… John Lennon’s childhood. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John: Mimi, the buttoned-up Aunt who raised him, and Julia, the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n’ roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice – and an icon explodes into the world.

Following the film will be a lively Q&A discussion led by well known music journalist Vivien Goldman (author of acclaimed Marley bio The Book of Exodus).
