When it comes to The Beatles, I'm extremely reluctant when other people sing their songs. I'll only go with it if it's Celine Dion holding the microphone.
So, when I heard about the movie Across the Universe (2007), I didn't know what to expect. Would it be a tasteless musical with bad performances of my favorite songs?
I enjoyed watching it up to the last minute! The director (Julie Taymor) has done an amazing job composing the scenes and the songs are so well-performed that I was stunned. It's an amazing combination of American history and British music. LOVE!
These are two of my favorite scenes:
