Across the Universe

In which I ruin the movie for you if you haven't seen it.

So, yeah -- spoiler alert, I guess.

On the way to India, I started watching "Across the Universe," the Julie Taymor movie that relies heavily on reimagined Beatles songs, loosely tied together in a plot involving Vietnam, civil disobedience, the frivolity of college, the struggles of the artist, a plethora of love stories, and a bunch of other stuff. On the way back, I finished watching it.

Anyway, this scene is the very end of the film. I am such a sap that it's a good thing the lights were dimmed so most people were sleeping and nobody saw me weeping over Jude and Lucy's roof-to-roof reunion happy ending. That's just how I roll.

Here's the clip:
