Yesterday is in theaters on June 28th, 2019.
Yesterday is a movie that is directed by Danny Boyle and screenplay by Richard Curtis (About
Time, Love Actually). Yesterday is a romantic comedy movie with an
interesting idea that, what if there was no Beatles and their music in this world, but you are
the only one who remembered them and their music. Main character Jack Malik, played by
Himesh Patel shows a great performance in this movie. All those emotional
fluctuation/express that character in the movie performed very well and sympathetic.
Other than Himesh Patel, Lily James, Joel Fry, and other cast also did their job. Especially Joel Fry’s character Rocky seemed one of those characters (from Richard Curtis’s previous film Notting Hill character Spike played by Rhys Ifans) who carries lots of jokes, and humor and I liked it. But honestly, I am little disappointed with this movie.
I mean this is decent romantic comedy movie, and if you expected fast pace lovely, simple romantic comedy, you will like it. But I was expecting something different from this movie. I thought this movie will be more like music oriented movie like “Begin Again”. I was expecting to listen more Beatles music. Like Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocket Man, or Begin Again, I was expecting to get more Beatles Music from this film, but Beatles and their beloved songs were only little hint/spice in this movie. If you expect to get more Beatles and their song, you may disappoint. This movie does not contain satisfactory musical sequences like other three movies that I mentioned earlier.
Again, this is decent romantic comedy film that you can enjoy, but if you expected more music oriented film (like Begin Again), you will disappoint. Depends on your expectation on this movie, you will like or not.
Rating: 3 out of 5
