On a personal note... Beyond the unique visual and musical interpretations, Across the Universe triggered reflection, taking me back to a time where endless possibilities lay ahead and so many experiences were "first times." Your personal "once upon a time" may have come at a different moment than mine, but the process of self-discovery and coming-of-age is universal.

The film shares significant moments we can all appreciate, still relevant today:

When you fall deeply in love for the first time. Your first real heartbreak. Discovering injustice and inequity. Realizing our government is fallible and sometimes lies to us. The impact of music upon our lives and its power in driving emotion and motivation. Seeing Americans die overseas and here at home. The role of non-violent public protest in changing the course of society. And many more. Like WWII, the sixties created a smorgasbord of life events that shaped our generation and those that followed.

If any of this resonates with you, no matter your age or recollection, join us next Tuesday and open your heart and senses to Across the Universe.
