Across the Universe
The charming, anti-cynical storyline of Julie Taymor's odd 2007 love story gets lost behind the film's "device": its characters move the story along, Moulin Rouge-style, by singing plot-appropriate Beatles songs, including "Girl," "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?", "Helter Skelter," "If I Fell," and "Strawberry Fields Forever." Jim Sturgess and the happily everpresent Evan Rachel Wood star. A discussion follows the screening.
