Across the Universe

September 21st 2007

An original musical film, Across The Universe is a fictional love story set in the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, the struggle for free speech and civil rights, mind exploration and rock and roll. At once gritty, whimsical and highly theatrical, the story moves from high schools and universities in Massachusetts, Princeton and Ohio to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Detroit riots, Vietnam and the dockyards of Liverpool. A combination of live action and painted and three-dimensional animation, the film is paired with many Beatles songs that defined the time.

Directed By Julie Taymor

Here, here, here, here and
are some clips that someone ripped from the Across the Universe website and put on youtube. They're pretty poor quality so I would recommend that anyone who wants to see them goes the official site and watches them there. But I thought I'd post the links anyway, just in case someone's computer is slow and they don't feel like trying to navigate the website.

OMG I can't wait! I've been waiting forever! thanks laffy....I'll be at the first showing! :D :hug:

No problem! I'm seriously soooo excited to see this movie!

Honestly it's like everything that I'd be interested in; all thrown into

a film! I can't even begin to describe how appealing all the parts of the movie

are to me but I'll try!

It's a musical (I love it already) with Beatles music (Are you kidding me?! They're the greatest of all time) mostly from the 60's (I should've been born then!) they live and love free (:wub:) then the war starts and they protest!

The first time I saw the preview in the movie theatre all my friends looked at me when it was done.

They knew I would love it!

:ddr:

I'm so F*CKING excited!!!!!!
