Across the Universe (2007)

Brief Nudity

Top Scene


Tune in, turn on, and pop off, as Hollywood realizes a billion baby-boomer dreams in the form of Late-’60s Counterculture: The Musical! The swirling, high-energy, hard-rocking phantasmagoria Across the Universe (2007) is art-world icon Julie Taymor's trippy big-screen rock opera powered by the music of the Beatles. The film follows Jude (Jim Sturgess) and Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), a star-crossed pair of longhairs who oppose the war and everything else that isn't groovy. Along with a whole passel of people named for Beatles songs (including JoJo [Martin Luther], Max [Joe Anderson], Sadie [Dana Fuchs], and dear, dykaliciously inclined Prudence [T.V. Carpio]), Evan and Jim try to find their way through a world in total turmoil, what with Vietnam, race riots, free love, and psychedelic experimentation being the order of the day (tripper) back then. Aided by Dr. Robert (Bono) and Mr. Kite (Eddie Izzard), our huge-hearted heroes fight in a manner far beyond their control to stay together eight days a week. There are a whopping thirty-three musical numbers in Across the Universe, but the show stoppers are Evan's left knocker and wood-bestowing buns. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Damn, girl!
