When I saw its trailer, I got really excited and after a while, I thought it would be another film with a great premise (a premise I hoped I thought of myself) but has problematic writing overall. But I was wrong, it went beyond the premise. I enjoyed the romantic angle, and I appreciate the moral dilemma it presented. More than the music, I find this film satisfying. It says a lot about the music industry, with multiple layers, and they are not even hidden. It has enough combination of humor and genuine deep emotions.

I'm not even really a Beatles fan. But I really enjoyed this movie. Himesh Patel and Lily James both deliver great performances and have wonderful chemistry together. Kate McKinnon actually gives a solid performance and is even quietly intimidating in some scenes. It probably doesn't go as far as it should with its premise. But it's so amiable and charming with what it does accomplish.

"Yesterday" has its premise all figured out. It just doesn't know where to take it, what to do with it when it gets there, or what it wants to say.

Those who know my taste in movies know that romantic comedies are low on my list - barely above overly Christian morality tales. So you would think that means Yesterday would be off my radar but... but I also love The Beatles and I was pretty much hooked on seeing this when the first trailer dropped. Plus, Danny Boyle is a fantastic director and I figured if he could make something as good as Slumdog Millionaire, he could make me like a film that featured romance in an alternate reality where The Beatles never existed.

That is the premise where we follow Jack Malik (Himesh Patel in what should be a career-making role), and his hard-working manager/teacher Ellie Appleton (Lily James) who has been enamored with him ever since his performance of "Wonderwall" back in the seventh grade …
