Across the Universe by Dick Clement & Ian La Frenais

Jude is a teenager who lives in Liverpool. But he didn't have a father. He ditched him and his mother after the war. So, he goes to America and finds him working at a janitor at Princeton college. At Princeton, he meets a slacker Maxwell Carrigan, who invites him to Thanksgiving. At Max's house, he meets his beautiful young sister, Lucy.

Jude and Max go to New York and bunk in with an aspiring rock singer, Sadie, who is working to put together a band. Over at their house they meet a black guitarist, JoJo, who has just lost his son in an attack, and a girl named Prudence, who had some problems with a guy in Ohio so she moved away.

After Jude hears Lucy's boyfriend, Daniel, died in the Vietnam War recently, he tries to comfort her. As this happens, they begin to fall in love. But during the affair, they get into fights due to their views on the war. Lucy believes in the anti-war movement, Jude, however, is against the war, but is against the antiwar movement's violence also.
