Storyline Heading
Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He's about to become a very big deal.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Musical - This is a romantic comedy/fantasy that heavily centers around the music of the Beatles. The more recognizable faces in the cast, Lily James and Kate McKinnon, have smaller supporting roles, with the leading being up-and-comer Himesh Patel. Some language and innuendo make the film of concerns to parents of young children, but most will find this to be safe for pre-teens and up.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good As a whimsical fantasy with a romantic element, Yesterday is appealing but for those expecting something more inventive, it may disappoint. And those hoping for wall-to-wall Beatles tunes are directed elsewhere.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average "Yesterday" wants to be a feel-good movie, and much of it did make me feel good. The looks on his friends' faces when they hear "Yesterday" for the first time was very moving. "Yesterday” dodges many of its most interesting ideas.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...a mostly enjoyable stroll down Penny Lane. Disappointingly, though, especially for those who dig the idea, "Yesterday” doesn't do nearly enough with a Beatles-less world we can only imagine, instead focusing on the kind of predictable love story we've seen before.

NY Post Full Review
Good ...a likable, quirky movie... Patel has an everyman appeal that keeps the movie from ever becoming too glitzy. He rattles off Curtis' many dry quips with ease. And, oh, those terrific Beatles songs. the film's conflict comes from a couple of others who still remember The Beatles after the blackout. Will they expose him as a fraud?

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 129 moviegoers:
OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "YESTERDAY." Most of those who didn't indicate that they loved "Yesterday," instead enjoyed it very much rating it "very good." Just a small percentage rated it "good/average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) 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). 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.
