Across the Universe

Film: Across the Universe

Genre: Drama, musical, romance

Director: Julie Taymor

Actors: Jim Sturgess, Evan Rachel Wood, Joe Anderson, Dana Fuchs, Martin Luther McCoy

This story of the sixties is about a boy from Liverpool, Jude Fenny, who travels to the United States of America to search for his father, who he has never met and who does not know he exists. He learns that his father works at Princeton as a janitor. Then he makes a friend, Max, and he meets his sister, Lucy. After the girl loses his boyfriend in the war, she starts having an affair with Jude.
Then, they move to New York City, where they know Sadie, a singer, Prudence, and Jojo. They become part of a group which wants to bring peace and love to the world.
Max does not continue his studies at the university so he is sent to the Vietnam war. Because of that, Lucy becomes involved in an anti-war movement.
I really love this film because it uses a lot of songs of The Beatles to tell the story, and it is very attractant. This is my favourite movie, I can watch it thousands of times and I will not get bored.
