  • Set in America during the Vietnam War, Across the Universe is a powerful love story set against a backdrop of political
    and social unrest: it's a story of soul-searching, self-doubt, and individual powerlessness cleverly conveyed through a
    multitude of Beatles songs. Like young adults all across America during the 1960's, Jude (Jim Sturgess), Lucy (Evan
    Rachel Wood), Max (Joe Anderson), Sadie (Dana Fuchs), Prudence (T.V. Carpio), and JoJo (Martin Luther) are in turmoil
    over the war; questioning their individual roles in the war effort and struggling to find a way to hold true to their
    beliefs while making a difference in the world. While love proves a powerful uniting force, its limitations become clear
    as relationships are strained and broken over individual perceptions of responsibility to cause and country. A fairly
    bizarre juxtaposition of extremely stylized, almost hallucinogenic scenes of swirling colors and reflections, highly
    choreographed dance segments, seemingly commonplace character interaction, and emotionally packed close-up footage of
    characters lost in contemplative song, this film imparts a good sense of the confusion and passion of the time and is at
    once powerful, invigorating, and disturbing. The film runs a bit long at 2-hours 11-minutes and several segments drag
    noticeably thanks to some incredibly slow song tempos. Warning: this production may change how you think about a
    favorite Beatles song forever. --Tami Horiuchi
