Oh man – what would YOU do if you were a struggling musician who woke up to find that The Beatles never existed…but you remember all their songs? Synopsis!
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.
I’ve gotta say that sounds like a huge problem, and I have absolutely zero idea what I’d do…but damn if I’m not dying to see where this film goes. (Plus, huge fan of Love, Actually and Slumdog Millionaire, so with a pedigree like that, this film sounds like a slam-dunk.) Yesterday hits theaters June 28th, 2019.
