"Across the Universe was created around the extraordinary, time defying music of The Beatles." - Julie Taymor

At once gritty, whimsical and highly theatrical, Revolution Studios' Across the Universe is a groundbreaking movie musical, springing from the imagination of renowned director Julie Taymor (Frida, Titus, and the Broadway smash hit musical "The Lion King")  from a story by Julie Taymor & Dick Clement & Ian La Frenais with screenplay by  Dick Clement & Ian La Frenais (The Commitments), that brings together an original story and 30 revolutionary songs - including "Hey Jude," "I Am the Walrus," and "All You Need is Love" - that defined a generation.

A love story set against the backdrop of the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, mind exploration and rock 'n roll, the film moves from the dockyards of Liverpool to the creative psychedelia of Greenwich Village, from the riot-torn streets of Detroit to the killing fields of Vietnam. The star-crossed lovers, Jude (Jim Sturgess) and Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), along with a small group of friends and musicians, are swept up into the emerging anti-war and counterculture movements, with “Dr. Robert” (Bono) and “Mr. Kite” as their guides. Tumultuous forces outside their control ultimately tear the young lovers apart, forcing Jude and Lucy – against all odds – to find their own way back to each other.


This special three-day event includes an exclusive introduction from Julie Taymor.
