Whether you're a Big Beatles Fan, or like them, or don't really care about the Beatles, this movie makes them relevant. You're surprised how many songs you know, plus the thought if none of them existed. Was it all bad that Jack brought it back w/ the misconception of those songs being his? Is the Love for his music and the Beatles more important, than the Love of his Best girlfriend since middle school and his manager, Ellie (Lily James)? Ed Sheeran (Ed Sheeran) is an awesome support in the movie w/ funny one liners and freshing up the Beatles songs for today. How about 'Hey Dude'???
YESTERDAY was a surprising movie to the senses and emotions. It didn't get nominated for anything Oscar, which I find disappointing. It wasn't the usual music themed involved romantic comedy. It's funny, creative, thought provoking, fun and all-around emotion grabber in many ways. You can relate to the characters. The talent is incredible. Himesh Patel, who portrays Jack Malik, is incredible. He plays & sings all the songs with stellar acting skills. He definitely fits the part, and makes it believable why the Beatles needs to exist, and why he's the guy to do it. You will have to watch the alternate ending, outtakes and the recordings Himesh did after you watch the movie on Netflix (dvd is out right now).
