YESTERDAY – Review by Diana Saenger

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

If you haven’t heard or seen anything about Yesterday it’s a little confusing in the beginning as the Beatles are nowhere to be seen or heard from this point. Then we meet Jack Malik (Himesh Patel ) who has decided he wants to write songs and sing them for a career. If it wasn’t for his adorable girlfriend Ellie (Lilly James) he wouldn’t have worked so hard to achieve his dream. Stretching his mind he starts out writing a song called Yesterday and his friends love it.

As a Baby Boomer I really enjoyed hearing all the Beatles songs that took me back to many places and many unforgettable memories. I hope some of the younger generation will see the movie; and I’m sure they will like the songs that have never stopped showing up across the world for many years. They will also like Himesh Patel as Jack. His singing is so well done when he faces a field of thousands of screaming fans. But, when a secret is unveiled does Ellie stay in his life?
