Movie Info

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.


Critic Reviews for Yesterday

  • By the time the sun goes down on this peculiarly small-seeming fable, not even Curtis' usual tear-jerking tenderness is there to cushion the blow; your guitar will be the only thing that gently weeps.

  • Although this film can be a bit hokey and uncertain on narrative development, the puppyish zest and fun summoned up by Curtis and Boyle carry it along.

  • In "Yesterday," a world without the Beatles doesn't look any different, so there's little potency to the film's fantasy of the Beatles coming back.

  • Crowd-pleasing and sometimes enjoyable, but pretty damned dumb when you stop to think about it.

  • Richard Curtis's twee, nudging, corny comedic voice is very much the main sensibility here, far more so than anything offered by director Danny Boyle or anyone else involved.

  • This is a Beatles commercial, plain and simple. And look, we're not arguing with the product. We're just saying the advertising is a little tacky.
