“Across the Universe,” the 2007 British-American jukebox musical romantic drama film, directed by Julie Taymor, centered on songs by the English rock band The Beatles, will return to the big screen at Bainbridge Cinemas at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 31.
The film incorporates 34 compositions originally written by members of The Beatles. It stars Jim Sturgess, Evan Rachel Wood, Joe Anderson and T.V. Carpio, and introduced Dana Fuchs and Martin Luther McCoy. Cameo appearances are made by Bono, Eddie Izzard, Joe Cocker and Salma Hayek, among others.
Though it opened to mixed reviews, “Across the Universe,” was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award. In it, the music of The Beatles and the drama of the Vietnam War form the backdrop for the romance between an upper-class American girl and a poor Liverpudlian artist.
