About the Event
2hr11min. 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
Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald "It's more than a nostalgia trip. The real pleasure lies in Taymor's ability to make it all seem brand new."
Peter Travers Rolling Stone "[A] visionary attempt to wed a story of young love and 1960s war protest to the Lennon-McCartney catalog."
Lisa Kennedy Denver Post "Across the Universe isn't beholden to any stage incarnation. It owes its vision to the vibrant imagination of its director, who created a musical that reminds us how cultural-political events can change our tune."
