Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis have teamed up for Brit flick ‘Yesterday’.
Let me try and explain the plot, please bare with me it’s little complicated. Jack (Himesh Patel) is a failing musician who is managed by his best friend/school teacher Ellie played by the awesome Lily James. He is ready to give up when something strange happens one night after his bicycle crashes into a bus… A global blackout!
When he wakes up in hospital with 2 missing teeth he also realises that the world has erased all memory of music by The Beatles.
So yes you guessed it, he decides to start releasing Beatles classics as his own. Jack creates a buzz and eventually…you ready for this Ed Sheeran comes knocking on his door quite literally and offers him a support slot on tour. It’s all rather unbelievable but I think that’s the point.
Ellie is also in love with Jack and decides to tell him just as he is leaving for L.A to make it big and sign a record label. The ‘will they or won’t they’ storyline is sweet with a load of humour and chuck in Ed Sheeran taking the piss out of himself. The supporting cast also add value including the brilliantly funny Kate Mckinnon who is hiliarious as Ed’s money hungry American agent Debra.
