Only with less hope. In a film that trumpets sexual and creative freedom as a means of personal salvation, one throwaway line can cut so deeply. But I regretted the fact that most of the new ones were so grim and humorless.

That young man, Jude Jim Sturgessis a cheeky Liverpool dockworker with a twinkle in his eye. He quickly emerges as a winsome vocal composite of John Lennon and Paul McCartneywith a personality to match. From here the movie only gets better.
Across the Universe is a British-American jukebox musical romantic drama film directed by Julie Taymorcentered on songs by the English rock band the Beatles. It incorporates 34 compositions originally written by members of the Beatles. The film received mixed reviews from critics, with many praising the visuals, cast and singing performances, though criticised the plot and direction.
Here is where Max Carrigan Joe Andersona spirited hippie rebel from an upper-middle-class family, reluctantly reports for his physical examination after receiving his draft notice. Because he was told that if he swallowed cotton balls they would show up on an X-ray as spots on his lungs, he quickly ingests one as he enters the building. No sooner has Max arrived than an Uncle Sam recruiting poster stirs to life, and the eagle-eyed glare of the white-haired geezer in his top hat and parade outfit fixes on him.
On Feb. Lennon was uncertain as to how to capture on tape the way he heard the song in his head, according to Mark Lewisohn's The Beatles Recording Sessions As recording proceeded, a variety of instruments and techniques were tried, including producer George Martin on organ, Lennon on mellotron and backwards bass and drum tracks before the final vision took shape. In fact, it could be the best.
Using 33 Beatles songs and minimal dialogue, Across the Universe tells the story of three young adults in the late s: Lucy then year-old Evan Rachel Woodan all-American girl who wants to change the world; her brother Max Joe Andersona rebel who gets dragged into Vietnam; and Jude Jim Sturgessa working-class artist from Liverpool who follows his dreams across the ocean. Their stories coalesce in New York City, where they befriend blues musicians, acid heads, radical extremists, a closeted lesbian, and Bono in a ridiculous mustache. Even in more traditionally constructed scenes, the scale is breathtaking; the entire film was shot on location and, according to Taymor, employed 5, extras.
