Across the Universe
Beatles songs with a different, good twist
This review is coming from a person who does not like musicals. I think they're over the top, and often times music disrupts the flow of the film....
With that said, this movie takes a modern adaptation to music by the Beatles but still takes place in the 60's. The characters represent well what kind of things people dealt with back in that day. I'm not a fan of choreography, and it was minimal in this movie. The singing was great, and the movie flowed well.
When it comes to musicals, this movie is the near the top for me.
