    If you like Beatles tunes then you should enjoy this film. It has a great sound track with original covers of the classics - the lead character can indeed sing. It also has an amazingly refreshing lead actress in Lily James. So much better than the stale and hollow performances of some of the more established actresses.

    This probably relates to those who actually grew up in the 60s to appreciate this movie. My connection? In 1964, I got to see the top of their limo going down Garfield Blvd. headed to Comiskey Park. In 1984 I knew the ex wife of the person who came up with the Beatles logo when he worked for Ludwig Drums. That is the total extent of my Beatle connection. However to see this movie took me back to those times when The were all over the radio and in the news. How much they were an influence on my life. At the time I did not understand. Now I do. If you are a Beatles fan this is not to be missed. I bought this dvd about a year ago. Yet did not watch it until now. Not kidding writing this as the dvd completed. Just had to put it into writing, the memories, the memories.

    I really wasn't a fan of this movie. I saw it in theaters when it came out and it was bored out of my mind with the incredibly lackluster plot and absolutely no emotional attachment to the characters. My family are die hard Beatles fans if this tells you how bad it much be.

    You think the guy will understand his mistake and just because 2 hippies arrive and advise him, he continues his charade as a "tribute" until he gains consciousness. No, I can't with that and less with Ed Sheeran for no reason in half a movie. The main cast have no chemistry and it looks more forced than the glass slipper on the feet of Cinderella's stepsisters.

    Dude, the trailer was the entire movie. Growing up as a beatle lover, this movie sucked ass.. I can't believe I wasted like an hour of my life on it.... So Sad

    Just sat down to watch Yesterday for the fourth time and was happy to see the Audience Rating for this gem of a movie at near 90% after thousands of reviews up against a mere 350+ critic submissions. My hope is that my review - in addition to others who feel the unjustified ratings from critics and rate accordingly - will push this over the 90% threshold so others might be inspired to watch. Beatles fan or not, this movie is a remedy to so much of the negativity that fills our screens each day - a light hearted movie for all that is both encouraging and inspiring - re-visiting so many of the songs that have shaped (the good) music of today - and safe for the whole family to watch as a bonus. My sense from reading the reviews from the critics that anything short of John Lennon actually showing up in person for this film would not have caused them to review above 70-80%. Was it a perfect film - close, but - yes - there are a couple of tweaks that might have kept the critics happier - but I am glad to have this evergreen film in my movie library to revisit for years to come. Critics, sit down and re-watch this gem given all that is going on in the world. You may want to rethink tour ratings on this one.

    Himesh Patel stars as Jack Malik a struggling musician who, after an accident awakes to find out certain things no longer exist, such as the music of the Beatles. This is the sort of fantasy movie that is both fun and sweet. The music is of course incredible and the film succeeds in making people love the music for the first time all over again. Very enjoyable and excellently cast.
