Yesterday
Himesh Patel and Lily James


Overview - Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC's Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mama Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed... and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack's fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie -- the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

Reviews:
"[A] crowd-pleasing and sometimes enjoyable....Kate McKinnon plays the film's most entertaining character..." - 05/04/2019 Hollywood Reporter


"At heart, the movie is a fantasy of rebooting the Beatles -- of imagining that if their music came at us now, for the first time, it would be, in a word, yuge." - 05/04/2019 Variety


"[Jack] plays 'Yesterday' for his friends, and the looks on their listening faces is a potent -- and welcome -- reminder of the song's melancholy beauty. The entire film stops, allowing us the space to really listen." - 06/27/2019 RogerEbert.com


"'I don’t believe in Beatles,' John Lennon once sang. This silly and sincere pop confection, energetically directed by Danny Boyle, wonders what might happen if nobody else did, either." - 06/26/2019 New York Times


3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] light summer breeze of escapist fun courtesy of high-powered director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Richard Curtis." - 06/26/2019 Rolling Stone


"YESTERDAY keeps the balloon in the air, sending Jack on a giddy trip to stardom with the help of the real-life Sheeran and a hilariously insensitive L.A. manager played by Kate McKinnon, in all her cockeyed deadpan glory." - 06/27/2019 Washington Post


4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hile Danny Boyle’s new film is still a largely warm and frequently surprising affair, its unusual premise gives it an edge that other jukebox hits -- BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, for example -- have lacked." - 06/27/2019 Empire


"For many viewers, the combination of Boyle and Curtis will be a dream ticket. They’re surely the Lennon and McCartney of contemporary mainstream British cinema..." - 06/28/2019 Film Comment
