Description

Jack Malik was just another struggling songwriter...but that was yesterday. After a mysterious blackout, Jack (Himesh Patel) discovers he is the only person on earth who remembers The Beatles! As he rockets to fame by passing off the Fab Four's songs as his own, Jack risks losing Ellie (Lily James) – the one person who has loved him and believed in him from the start. Before the door to his old life closes forever, Jack must decide if all he needs is love, after all. Kate McKinnon and Ed Sheeran also star in this romantic rock 'n' roll comedy from Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle and Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis.

    A great story and, though a total must-see for Beatles fans, this movie drives a lesson that nothing beats creating your own art and being proud of a life you’ve built authentically. Nothing, not the even the best music ever written, beats artistic integrity and being true to your message. A well done homage to the greatest band on earth and all the many lessons contained in the Beatles catalogue. Loved this so much.
  • Very disappointed

    I loved these books as a kid. I forget how many times I read them. This movie just butchered the stories. I can’t decide which was worse the really lame story line, or the horrible acting.
  • John L. Would’ve approved! And loved!

    The premise sees the Universe sending Jack Malick, a struggling musician, a message about getting hung up on the wrong things in his life. His favorite bands, bad habits, drinks, all disappear from Earth leaving him with a world where he is given a chance to gain some perspective. Yet in a world that no longer knows who The Beatles are, Jack takes it as an opportunity to continue to indulge himself by passing on their songs as his own. The movie takes him through a journey where he realizes that the things that he chased thinking they would make him happy are, in fact, only distancing himself from the world around him. Some nice parallels are drawn here that work very well due to the great Richard Curtis. The cast is as charming as one would expect in a Curtis written film. Himesh Patel does an outstanding job in his first feature role , striking a nice balance of being kind, oblivious lonely, yet hopeful. Lily James is at her best here and i can't wait to see her in future projects. Really there isn’t an actor here who doesn’t add to the movie’s beauty. Kate McKinnon is unbelievable here as a ambitious and ruthless manager and foil character who will do anything to make sure Jack takes her to her next level of success. I don’t get around to watching many movies anymore but after catching this on a flight recently , I had to see it again (but winded up watching it three times in a week). I suspect this will be another cult classic for Richard Curtis since Love Actually
  • Enjoyable...particularly if you like the Beetles!

    The most boring summer movie of 2019. Nothing happens, the entire film. You don’t learn anything about the main lead, and the supposed “comedic” bits aren’t even funny. They’re awkward. It felt like you needed someone with a sign that said “Haha” just to point out they’re funny. TL;DR: Don’t waste your time with this movie.
  • Somewhat Misunderstood

    Yesterday is fun, fiction, tender, a romantic comedy and BTW has Beatles music...I believe the ads and trailer misdirected us with the Beatles music part, not to denigrate their efforts which are unparalleled. Now out of theaters I think it was a great date night movie, all the parts are there. Who doesn’t like to laugh, smile, get tears eyed and have a happy ending except when watching a film on IFC. See the movie, enjoy the movie, laugh with it and walk out of the theater with a smile.
  • Great

    The preview showed a part where he sings “something in the way she moves” but it’s not in the movie. Regardless the movie was great but the teaser that I loved somehow made it to the trailer and not the movie. Weird.
  • Great movie!
