Yesterday doesn’t just feature the songs of The Beatles, the film also includes several Easter eggs and references to the legendary band’s career. Starring Himesh Patel as Jack Malick, Yesterday imagines a world where following an accident, he’s the only person who can remember The Beatles or their music.
Directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Richard Curtis, Yesterday sees Jack take The Beatles’ songs and pass them off as his own. He quickly becomes a sensation, blowing up almost overnight once a video of him opening for Ed Sheeran goes viral. Yet fame and fortune can’t stop Jack from feeling immense guilt over lying about who actually wrote these great songs.
