Description

Apollo's Singalong series gives you the opportunity to sing along with your favourite musicals, subtitled where possible, with a friendly crowd who doesn't care how off-key you are as long as you're belting it out to the rafters. The Beatles' songs may have provided the soundtrack for the lives of those coming-of-age in the '60s, but their extensive catalogue acts as the literal soundtrack in this romantic musical from visionary director Julie Taymor. Jim Sturgess stars as Jude, a young man working on the docks in Liverpool. Eager to escape, he travels to Princeton where he meets Max (Joe Anderson). But it’s his meeting with Max’s younger sister, Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), that changes him. They quickly fall in love, but their relationship is tested by the chaos of the times. Throughout the film, characters (and cool guest stars!) burst into classics, from "With a Little Help from My Friends," to "I Am the Walrus," to "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite." Get ready! It's a real trip!
