ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
Directed by Julie Taymor. Starring Jim Sturgess, Evan Rachel Wood, Eddie Izzard, Bono, Joe Cocker, Salma Hayek 15 cert
Taymor’s highly stylised musical draws on a wealth of Beatles songs for its tale of Jude (Sturgess), a young Liverpudlian, discovering the counter-culture in late 1960s New York and falling for student Lucy (Wood). This heady audiovisual experience is bursting with creative ideas and suffused with the joy of performance.
