Across the Universe

Across the Universe is a Beatles-inspired musical about a dock worker from Liverpool who travels to America during the sixties. The film centers around the anti-war movement of that time, with the actors expressing themselves via verse of the Beatles.

Below is actor Jim Sturgess' renditon of 'All My Loving.' In stark contrast to the original Merseybeat production of the song, this film's version is more down-beat and low-fi. But it easily fits into the contemporary corpus that is rock music today.

Stream it and compare it to the original version below:

Jim Sturgess - 'All My Loving'

The Beatles - 'All My Loving'
