Description

The music of the Beatles and the Vietnam War form the backdrop for the romance between an upper-class American girl and a poor Liverpudlian artist.

Across The Universe, from director Julie Taymor, is a revolutionary rock musical that re-imagines America in the turbulent late-1960s, a time when battle lines were being drawn at home and abroad.When young dockworker Jude (Jim Sturgess) leaves Liverpool to find his estranged father in America, he is swept up by the waves of change that are re-shaping the nation. Jude falls in love with Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), a rich but sheltered American girl who joins the growing anti-war movement in New York's Greenwich Village. As the body count in Vietnam rises, political tensions at home spiral out of control and the star-crossed lovers find themselves in a psychedelic world gone mad. With a cameo by Bono, Across The Universe is “the kind of movie you watch again, like listening to a favourite album.” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)

Critic Reviews:

  • “It's more than a nostalgia trip. The real pleasure lies in Taymor's ability to make it all seem brand new.” – Sydney Morning Herald
  • “Julie Taymor's adventure in Beatle-land is a huge success, ripping the songs that defined a generation and its (dashed) hopes for peace in a microcosm of a love story” – Urban Cinefile
  • “A marvellous visual experience that works even for non-Beatles fans.” – Cinema Sight
