Yesterday

Yesterday everyone knew the Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal.


Yesterday
Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. Jack 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. Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, he 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, his 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, he will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

Tomatometer quote iconYesterday may fall short of fab, but the end result is still a sweetly charming fantasy with an intriguing -- albeit somewhat under-explored -- premise.
