“Julie Taymor’s “Across the Universe” is an audacious marriage of cutting-edge visual techniques, heart-warming performances, 1960s history and the Beatles songbook.” – Roger Ebert
The songs of the Beatles provide the sonic framework for this musical tale of romance, war and peace. When young British worker Jude (Jim Sturgess) sets sail for the United States in search of his father, he ends up meeting carefree college student Max (Joe Anderson) and his lovely sister, Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), along with a cast of eccentric characters. As Jude and Lucy fall for each other, their relationship is threatened by the social upheaval that accompanies the Vietnam War.
Dir. Julie Taymor. 2007. 133 min.
