We watched Across the Universe last night. Overall it was a decent movie, though it was entirely too long winded for me. It says it is only 131 minutes, but it feels like a solid 3 hours.
The cast is pretty much unknowns (or at least I don't know any of them), and the story revolves around a young brit who comes to the U.S. to find his dad and ends up staying to falling in love, getting wrapped up in some drugs, art, and eventually an anti-war protest.
In my opinion there are too many characters introduced to make you truly care about any of them. I kind of got lost during the psychedelic portion of the movie, and after that I just stopped caring.
I am glad we didn't see it in the theatres. The soundtrack was pretty dang good though!
