#REVIEW: “YESTERDAY” BLU-RAY
Imagine a world without The Beatles. Danny Boyle‘s Musical Romantic-Comedy YESTERDAY explores this possibility as we follow struggling Singer/Songwriter Jack Malik‘s (a fantastic breakout performance by Himesh Patel) sudden rise to stardom after waking-up from an accident to discover he could get away with being the one responsible for crafting some of the greatest songs of all time. With his star rising internationally, at what cost does this come when he risks losing the love of his life, his former manager Ellie (Lily James). Ed Sheeran also stars as himself in this lighthearted and sweet story which is a must-see for any fans of The Beatles. There isn’t a better way to spend a chilly fall evening than to cuddle-up to Yesterday.
