Movie Review and Blu-ray/DVD Giveaway: Yesterday

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
Jack Malik was just another struggling songwriter ... but that was yesterday. After a mysterious blackout, Jack (Himesh Patel; BBC’s “EastEnders”) discovers he is the only person on earth who remembers The Beatles! As he rockets to fame by passing off the Fab Four’s songs as his own, Jack risks losing Ellie (Lily James; Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Cinderella) -- the one person who has loved him and believed in him from the start. Kate McKinnon and Ed Sheeran also star in this romantic rock ‘n’ roll comedy from Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually).

Yesterday on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital comes packed with exciting bonus features including deleted and extended scenes, live performances at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, an alternate opening and ending and several featurettes with the filmmakers and cast that take fans further into the charming story. Hailed as “Funny, original, and touching” (Patrick Stoner, “Flicks” WHYY-TV (PBS)), Yesterday is a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life. Stay in, “re-experience the Beatles' songs as if they're brand-new” (Mara Reinstein, Billboard) and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ Abbey Road this year with the perfect at-home movie night when you own Yesterday on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital.

The soundtrack to Yesterday is available on digital/streaming services as well as CD from Capitol Records/Polydor Records.

MY REVIEW:
I have been telling everyone to watch Yesterday! That’s how much I loved this movie. The music is terrific (it’s The Beatles, after all), and Himesh Patel truly does justice to these tunes. He has a fabulous voice and plays his role superbly. Actress Lily James plays a plainer character than usual. She’s the “girl back home” who secretly loves Jack but doesn’t want to prevent him from following his dreams. Ed Sheeran does a terrific job in his first movie role playing himself. Yesterday is a highly entertaining, feel-good movie that you’ll want to watch numerous times and share with friends.

    My favorite Beatles song is the not very well know song: I Will. It is hauntingly beautiful, I think.
