Yesterday (12A)

Romance, Music, Fantasy

A romantic comedy in which a man wakes up after an accident and finds he is the only person in the world to remember The Beatles.

The critical consensus

A hopeless songwriter wakes up to find he’s the only person who can remember the Fab Four’s hits in a wacky, winning comedy directed by Danny Boyle.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 05/05/2019

With a screenplay by Richard Curtis, Danny Boyle’s far-fetched tale of plagiarism has nothing like the momentum of the director’s best works.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 08/05/2019

A glowing tribute to The Beatles and their music, this is both a toe-tapping pleasure to watch and a smart, occasionally scathing look at how we get things wrong.

****(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 07/05/2019

It's hard not to warm to a film filled with so many Beatles tracks. But Yesterday never quite convinces as a classic Curtis rom-com, while it lacks the infectious euphoria of Boyle's best work.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 24/06/2019

Yesterday is an uplifting and entertaining romantic comedy, only slightly dragged down from a distracting performance.

****(*)Kyle Gaffney, Review Sphere, 23/06/2019

Sweet and satisfying but completely hollow.

***(*)(*)Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent, 27/06/2019

A star-making turn from Himesh Patel just isn’t enough.
