Plot

The film plot relates the interweaving stories of several characters set against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s. The arc of the storyline spans from the early innocent part of the decade to the politically-charged later years of the decade.[1]


The story starts in the mid 1960s with a young Liverpudlian ship builder named Jude (Jim Sturgess) who travels by ship to the United States in search of his American G.I. father, Wes (Robert Clohessy), whom he has never met and who does not know his son exists. While searching for his father at Princeton, he befriends Max (Joe Anderson), a rebellious young man from a privileged background, and Max's sister Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood). Max drops out of college and moves to New York City, accompanied by Jude. Max works as a taxi driver, while Jude pursues work as a freelance artist. They become roommates in a bohemian enclave where they share an apartment with other people, most notably Sadie (Dana Fuchs), their landlady, who is an aspiring singer. Other residents include Jojo (Martin Luther McCoy), a guitarist who arrives from Detroit after the death of his younger brother during the 12th Street riot; and Prudence (T.V. Carpio), a young bisexual girl who hitchhikes to New York City from Dayton, Ohio. Lucy joins them in New York after her boyfriend is killed in the Vietnam War and her parents want her to take a long vacation before she goes to college.

Romances develop between Lucy and Jude and between Sadie and Jojo, which leaves Prudence depressed and eventually contributes to her joining the circus. When Max is drafted and sent to Vietnam, Lucy becomes involved in a radical anti-war movement, which leads to strain with the comparatively apolitical Jude. He is unhappy with the amount of time she spends with the political group, suspecting that its leader, Paco (Logan Marshall-Green), is a lothario. Jude's art and his relationship with Lucy both start to falter. Meanwhile, Sadie has formed a band, Sadie and the Po Boys, with Jojo as her lead guitarist. She gains the attention of a manager (James Urbaniak) who signs her to a record label, but he wants her to drop her backing band. This leads to a break up between Sadie and Jojo, both musically and romantically. Logan as Trey Atwood in The O.C.

The differences between Jude and Lucy escalate. One day, Jude storms into the offices of the political group where Lucy works and is kicked out after punching Paco. This leads to a fight between the couple, resulting in Lucy leaving Jude. Jude finds her at an anti-war demonstration at Columbia University during which many protesters, including Lucy, are arrested. In attempting to help her, Jude is also arrested. Though Wes convinces the police not to press charges for actions at the protest, he cannot prove that Jude is his son (and thus an American citizen), and Jude is deported back to England. He finds his old girlfriend pregnant by an apparent old friend of his, who smugly kisses his ex on the cheek, much to the uncaring attitude of Jude. Max is wounded in Vietnam and is repatriated, emotionally and mentally shattered by his experiences, while Lucy remains involved in her anti-war faction that is becoming more and more violent. She finally leaves the group when she returns to their old headquarters and discovers Paco and some of his followers making bombs. One of their creations explodes, destroying the building. Jude reads about the explosion in a Liverpool newspaper and is concerned that Lucy has died. He subsequently hears from Max that she is alive, and he arranges to return to the States legally. He meets Max, who drives him to Sadie's music headquarters where a Beatles-style rooftop concert is being held by Jojo, Sadie, and their band singing "Don't Let Me Down". Lucy is supposed to be there to meet Jude again, but no one can find her, and the group is forced to leave when the police arrive, but Jude manages to stay on the roof and begins to sing "All You Need Is Love", The rest of the band hears him and comes back on to the roof and they join him with their voices and instruments. Max suddenly stares out onto the atmosphere as they sing, and Jude turns to see Lucy standing on the roof across the street. They smile at one another with tears in their eyes, and the screen fades out to white clouds and blue sky.

Use of The Beatles' Music

The film begins with Jude singing the beginning verse of "Girl." It seems to set the film up to be an account that Jude is telling ("Is there anybody going to listen to my story, all about the girl who came to stay"), possibly set before he returns to America. Then a sequence featuring "Helter Skelter". The scene then flips back and forth between Lucy's prom and Jude in a club with his girlfriend, Molly (possibly the singer in the band from "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da") and Lucy each singing Hold Me Tight. When Jude is picking up his pay, the man giving it to him says, "I thought the same thing at your age. When I'm Sixty- Four I'll be long gone from this place," in reference to the Beatles song, "When I'm Sixty-Four." Jude goes home to his mother, Martha ("Martha My Dear") to tell her that he's going to America to meet his estranged father. "All My Loving" is then sung by Jude to his current girlfriend in Liverpool, prior to departing for America. Prudence appears singing ""I Wanna Hold Your Hand" as her thoughts about another cheerleader at her school, after which she hitchhikes to New York. After Jude meets Max, "With A Little Help from My Friends" is sung around the college campus where Max attends and Jude's father works. The scene in which this song takes place shows a drunken Max and Jude passed out with other college friends in the dormitories. Later, Max takes Jude home to meet his family. After he has had dinner with Max and Lucy's family, they decide to take Jude bowling. At the alley, Jude realizes he has feelings for Lucy, singing "I've Just Seen a Face". The scene shifts to show a small child (Jojo's brother) hiding next to a burned out car during the 12th Street riot, singing "Let It Be"; it changes into a gospel rendition and we move back and forth between the funeral of Lucy's boyfriend, killed in Vietnam, and the boy's funeral, killed in the riot. Meanwhile, Max and Jude travel to New York and find a room to rent with a singer named Sadie who Max refers to as a "fox" ("Sexy Sadie").

As Jojo leaves Detroit (not Tucson, AZ as refered to in "Get Back") and arrives in New York City, Joe Cocker sings "Come Together" as a bum, a pimp, and a street seller. Prudence runs away from an abusive man and comes into the group's apartment, prompting the lines "Hello Hello", "Where'd she come from? - She came in through the bathroom window". Later, Sadie sings "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" at Cafe Huh? to an enthusiastic crowd. In the next scene, Jude and Lucy are seen at a dock; Lucy sings "If I Fell" as she realizes her own feelings towards him. The songs ends with their kiss and embrace at a party. Max is drafted and during his recruitment tests we hear "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"; the scene later shifts to Sadie singing to Jojo and Prudence distantly singing to Sadie through her window. Prudence is heartbroken, locking herself in the closet. Sadie, Max, Lucy, and Jude sing "Dear Prudence" to convince her to come out. "Flying" and "Blue Jay Way" appear in the background shortly thereafter. Music sample Get Back ( file info) Problems? See media help. ... For other uses, see Come Together (disambiguation). ...

Immediately following the disappearance of Prudence, Sadie is courted by a record producer to sign with him. He brings her with the group to a party in honor of writer Dr. Robert (played by Bono). Dr. Robert sings "I Am the Walrus" at the party, and the song continues as they drive away on his bus, named "Beyond" - related to "FUTHUR" the bus from the book "Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" by Tom Wolfe. They end up near "Dr. Greary's Farm", referencing Dr. Timothy Leary, and the climatic meeting of the EAST and WEST COAST counter cultures of the 1960s.

Back in New York, Jude sings "Something" as he sketches the sleeping Lucy. Next, Sadie and her band sing "Oh! Darling" at a gig at a large venue, leading to Sadie leaving with her manager.

Lucy is going to Columbia University for a protest and after finding her things gone at home, Jude decides to go after her. He sings "Across the Universe" on the subway. First a troup of Hare Krishnas and later corpses of Vietnamese women join him in the chorus. He continues singing the refrain as the scene then shifts between the protest and Sadie in concert singing "Helter Skelter". ("And I Love Her" is listed in the film's credits at this point in the sequence, presumably referring to the deleted scene on the DVD featuring this song.) Max is back from Vietnam, injured in the hospital. He and other soldiers sing "Happiness Is a Warm Gun." There is a slight reprise of "Revolution". Then, Jeff Beck's version of "A Day in the Life" plays as Jude works in the shipyards. A few more months later, Max is out of the hospital and Lucy takes him to where she sang "If I Fell" earlier in the film. Lucy sings "Blackbird". After this, the scene shifts between Jude and Max at different bars; Max begins to sing "Hey Jude" and Jude is seen going back to New York. Max picks him up from the port and they hear Sadie singing "Don't Let Me Down" on the radio, which then shifts into Sadie and the band playing atop a building. Jude hides when the police break up the concert, and sings "All You Need is Love" a cappella. Everyone hears and rushes back, persuading the police to let them sing one last song. Over the credits, Bono sings "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." "Flying" is reprised thereafter as covered by The Secret Machines. This article is about the song by The Beatles. ...

Production

Dispute

In March 2007, the media reported a dispute over the final cut of the film.

Extended musical numbers

There is extra music, such as in "Hold Me Tight", to have more opportunity for things such as dance solos. In "Come Together" on the special features there is extra music for a dance solo and a well-planned "Six Degrees of Separation" which connects the main characters as they enter New York lifestyle. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is also extended to add time for Max's medical check-up that is shown and for the dialogue about Max eating cotton balls and other theories to get out of the draft. The extended music is used as undertone during dialogue like after "Dear Prudence", "Something", and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Other extended songs include "I Am The Walrus", "Oh! Darling", "Across The Universe", "Helter Skelter". With the Beatles was The Beatles second album, recorded four months after the bands first album and released in late 1963. ...

"She Loves You"

In the Beatles' 1967 recording of the song "All You Need Is Love", as John Lennon sings the ending chorus and fade out of the song, he and Paul McCartney briefly sing the chorus of their 1963 hit "She Loves You" as a tongue-in-cheek nod to the band's earlier pop group incarnation.[6][7] In the performance of "All You Need Is Love" in the film, the same "She Loves You" chorus is sung as in the Beatles' original version. Unlike the Beatles' rendition, where the reprise of the 1963 chorus is a light-hearted throwaway moment, the film version uses the "She Loves You" lyric at a pivotal moment as a commentary on the romance between the story's principal two characters. Because the chorus of "She Loves You" was incorporated into the Beatles recording of "All You Need Is Love", the words and melody are also considered part of the latter composition. There is no credit given for the extract from "She Loves You" on the film's end credit sequence. On the 2-Disk Deluxe Edition of the DVD, credit is given for the extract from "She Loves You."[8] This article is about the Beatles song. ...

Beatles references

In addition to the 33 Beatles compositions used in the movie, there are multiple references in the film to Beatles lyrics and folklore.

  • The "T" in the title "Across the Universe" is dropped slightly from the rest of the text similar to the famous image of "The Beatles" on the bass drum of Ringo's drum set.
  • The title is taken from the Beatles song "Across the Universe", the "O" in "Across" is shown as a strawberry on the key-art advertising the film - a reference to the Beatles song "Strawberry Fields Forever."
  • The strawberry motif seen throughout the entire film and Jude's crazed art session with strawberries reflects the album art of Paul's first solo album, McCartney.
  • The Liverpool club seen during the UK part of the "Hold Me Tight" sequence was filmed in the reconstituted Cavern Club in Liverpool. The band in the film are in similar stage set-up to the footage of the Beatles seen in the 1962 archive footage of the group performing the song "Some Other Guy" at the Cavern Club.
  • An elderly shipyard employee who gives Jude his paycheck says, "I told myself, 'When I'm sixty-four'..." a direct reference to the song title "When I'm Sixty-Four."
  • At college, Max generally goofs off and causes trouble. This is a reference to the song lyric, "Back in school again/Maxwell plays the fool again", from the song which gives Max his name "Maxwell's Silver Hammer."
  • The arrangement of the second half of the performance of "With A Little Help From My Friends" is based on the Joe Cocker version of the song.
  • In the above portion of the song "With A Little Help From My Friends", the boys are running and jumping around in an open field, a direct reference to a similar scene in the movie A Hard Day's Night.
  • The poster of French actress/model Brigitte Bardot in Max's dorm room is similar to one owned by and displayed in one of the homes of John Lennon.
  • Seen in Lucy's room, next to the mirror, is an early photo of George Harrison and John Lennon.
  • The Let it Be scene shows a crowd of people at a funeral dressed in black and holding black umbrellas. There is a very similar scene showing black-clad people with black umbrellas in the film Yellow Submarine.
  • There are several uses of the number "nine" - which is a popular number in Beatles culture because of the avant-garde Beatles recording Revolution 9. The apartment that Paco uses as his headquarters is apartment number 9. When Jude and Lucy go outside for fresh air during Sadie's show at Cafe Huh?, there is a number 9 behind them in the background. When Prudence locks herself in the closet, the number 9 is fixed to the closet door. At the end of the movie, when Lucy tries to get to Jude on the rooftop, the door that she's standing in front of when she rings the buzzer has a number 9 on it. When the group sings "Because" they are in a circle of nine.
  • When Max and Jude first see their new apartment, Sadie comments that Max seems harmless, but could have murdered his grandmother with a hammer, and in another scene Max is shown holding a hammer, both references to the song that inspired Max's name, "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". Also, Max has a habit of causing trouble with his father's set of golf clubs, which are "silver hammers" of sorts. In one scene, Sadie talks with Max while he uses a silver hammer to try to fix a fan.
  • During Sadie's performance of "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?", Jude shouts out the words "Sexy, Sadie" - the title of the song from which her name is taken.
  • A voice is heard yelling "Get Back!" when Sadie leaves the stage during "Oh! Darling."
  • Prudence enters Sadie's apartment through a window in the bathroom. Sadie asks where she came from, to which Jude replies, "She came in through the bathroom window" an obvious reference to the Beatles song "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window".
  • After Prudence enters through the bathroom window Jude greets her saying "Hello, hello" which can be seen as a reference to "Hello Goodbye".
  • Later in the film, Prudence locks herself in the closet and has to be serenaded out by the other cast members. This is a reference to a real occurrence in 1968 at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India where the Beatles, Mia Farrow, Donovan, and others were studying. Mia Farrow's sister, Prudence, was reclusive and did not leave her living quarters to join the other students, inspiring John Lennon to write the song "Dear Prudence." The film also uses the song as a subtle reference to the fictional Prudence character's reluctance to 'come out of the closet' in relation to her sexual orientation.
  • When Jude, Lucy, and Max are at the party for Doctor Robert (portrayed by Bono) they are seen drinking from a bowl of unknown liquid. This is a reference to the lyric, "Take a drink from his special cup, Doctor Robert" from the Beatles song "Doctor Robert."
  • In the scene when Jude is singing Something Lucy's sleep is a representation of the song Golden Slumbers as much of the scene is described in the song.
  • The bus trip with Dr. Robert appears to reference the 1967 Beatles production Magical Mystery Tour - a project that had itself been inspired by the 1964-1965 bus trips of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters - also referenced in Across The Universe. There is even a brief appearance by the bus driver who resembles the real Pranksters driver, beat icon Neal Cassady. Further evidence that Dr. Robert references Kesey is the style of the party, with Kool-Aid spiked with L.S.D. Dr. Robert holds forth with an Ampex tape delay echo machine that is on the signatures of the Merry Pranksters' "Acid Tests".
  • The "Blue People" in the sequence based on "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite" are based on The Blue Meanies from the animated film Yellow Submarine.
  • Jude and Lucy's underwater embrace during the end of the acid trip sequence is a tribute to a famous 1981 Rolling Stone cover featuring a naked John Lennon kissing a clothed Yoko Ono.
  • Sadie's record company is called "Strawberry Jamz" - a play on the Beatles company "Apple Corps."
  • Apple, the company founded by the Beatles in 1968, is obliquely referenced when Jude is trying to draw a green apple, then slices it in half and tries to draw it again, thus producing the two images used for that company's record labels. A green apple is also seen when Jude is drawing an apple when Lucy and Paco come in to drop off a TV.
  • The instrumental for "A Day in the Life" is playing as Jude, in Liverpool, reads the newspaper article about the bomb blast, thus referencing the line, "I read the news today, oh, boy."
  • The rooftop concert toward the end of the film, during which "Don't Let Me Down" is sung, references the Beatles' famous impromptu rooftop concert atop their Apple offices in January 1969 - their final live performance in which they also performed that song.

Doctor Robert is a representation of Ken Kesey, who established the group the Merry Pranksters. The group took a trip to New York to promote Kesey's new book Sometimes a Great Notion, just as Doctor Robert is promoting "I Am The Walrus" in the movie.

The psychedelic bus the group rides on, named "Beyond" is a reference to the similar bus used by the Pranksters named "Furthur."

Release and reception

Release history

The film's release date and release pattern became the subject of some media and public discussion. The film had been originally scheduled for release in 2006. The release was postponed as the editing process became extended and the subject of internal disputes arose. The film was subsequently scheduled for a wide release on approximately 1,000 US screens on September 28, 2007. In early September 2007, Sony Pictures announced that the release would be brought forward to September 14, with a "platform release" pattern starting on a small number of screens - with additional screens to be added in subequent weeks. This proved frustrating as the trailer was attached to Spiderman 3.


The film received its world premiere on Monday, September 10, 2007 at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film was then given a very limited "platform release" on 27 screens in the US on Friday September 14. The film had the second-highest "per-screen" average on its opening weekend. In the following three weeks, the release was gradually expanded to select regions.[10] After four weeks in limited release, the film was elevated to a comparatively broader release on 954 U.S. screens on October 12, breaking into the U.S. box office top ten at number 8.[11][12][10] Poster for the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival Box office at the Manulife Centre The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), held in Toronto, Canada, is widely considered to be one of the top film festivals in the world. ...
