I attended an advanced screening for my review. All opinions are my own.
“Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.
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, Mamma 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.”-©Universal Pictures
I love the Beatles and I have been excited to see the movie Yesterday. The premise of the movie intrigued me. I really liked the film.
I loved the music in the movie. This movie made me appreciate how much influence the Beatles have had in the world of music and pop culture. There would definitely be an empty space without them. There was a lot of Beatles music in the film but I wish there had been even more.
The cast was great. Himesh Patel was fantastic in the lead role of Jack. His voice is incredible. He was definitely a fantastic find for this movie. I thought Lily James was great in the supporting role of Ellie. I wish the filmmakers would have utilized her singing talent more in the film because I love her voice.
This was a lot of great humor in this film. My friend and I laughed more than I thought we would. In addition, I really liked the message behind the film of realizing what really should matter in your life and what should bring you happiness.
Yesterday is rated PG-13 “for suggestive content and language.” I think there is enough language and sexual material that little kids probably shouldn’t see this movie. I would say it is appropriate for older teens and adults.
I really enjoyed this movie. I think that fans of the Beatles are going to love this movie. If you are not a Beatles fan, I think you will still enjoy it.
Yesterday gets bragging rights!
Yesterday is now playing in theaters.
