Across the Universe/Best of the British Invasions

Across the Universe
A critically-acclaimed film, a kaleidoscopic ode to the sixties: cross-cultural romance, the conflict between art and commerce, conscription, protest culture, the music business and class conflict. Based on The Beatlesí songbook and set in the 1960ís England, America, and Vietnam, the love story of main characters Lucy and Jude is intertwined with the anti-war movement and social protests of the times. Over 30 Beatlesí songs are woven into the plot, together with visual allusions to the films Help! A Hard Dayís Night, Yellow Submarine and Let It Be.
