The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Film Reviews - MICHAEL DWYER

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.
