Holly on Hollywood – Yesterday

Holly on Hollywood
by Holly McClure

YESTERDAY, Jack Malik (Himesh Patel), was a 27-year-old struggling singer-songwriter whose biggest fan was his devoted best friend and manager, Ellie (Lily James). One night, Jack gets hit by a bus at the exact moment a mysterious global blackout occurs. When he awakens, he discovers a world where the Beatles music never existed. Jack begins performing the fab fours’ songs as his own and instantly becomes famous, with the help of Ed Sheeran (playing himself) and his new power-hungry manager (Kate McKinnon). But the price of fame and fortune without Ellie, makes Jack…
…long for yesterday. This PG-13 romantic comedy is a cross-generational fantasy pre-teens to adults will enjoy. Aside from some language (by McKinnon), two characters kiss but there are no sexual situations. There are funny moments when Jack realizes things like Coke and cigarettes that the world no longer remembers and sweet moments between Jack and Ellie falling in love. Patel delivers a believable dilemma of a singer on his road to stardom. James is a beautiful reminder of the real world he comes from. Sheeran shows a knack for humor in a funny scene where he suggests Jack change the title of “Hey Jude” to “Hey Dude”.  And McKinnon is sarcastically delightful portraying the ruthless side of the music industry. I thoroughly enjoyed YESTERDAY. It’s a sweet rom-com that reminded me of the iconic Beatles songs I listened to throughout my life. There’s an interesting cameo that will surprise you and a happy ending that proves… love is all you need.
