On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
In Lowestoft UK, Jack Malik is a frustrated musician whose musical career is going nowhere despite the faith that his friend/manager Ellie Appleton has in him. However, on the night Jack decides to give up, the whole world is momentarily hit with a massive blackout during which Jack is hit by a bus. Upon regaining consciousness, Jack learns to his astonishment that he is apparently now the only one who knows the music of the Beatles. Realizing this improbable opportunity, Jack begins playing the music of the greatest of the rock bands, claiming it as his own. It pays off quickly and Jack becomes a worldwide musical sensation. However, Jack finds himself drifting away from Ellie, only realizing his love for her when she has become intimidated by his success, which depends on a blatant plagiarization that no one could find out. Now, Jack must make a fundamental moral decision about his music to satisfy his conscience as he decides what he truly needs.Written by
The font of the movie's titles resembles the original font which was used for The Beatles' logo (with the exception of the bigger "T" that was used in the original logo). Also, the poster showed Jack in a crosswalk, similar to the famous cover of the "Abbey Road" album that shows The Beatles on the crosswalk at the Abbey Road Studios. See more »

I'm not hearing a word.
Okay, but look, this was my last gig. And I'm so happy you were there. This is the end of our long and winding road.

During the closing credits, massive, colored words pan horizontally across the screen in connection with the department that is currently scrolling up the screen. For example: EDITING, COLOUR, MUSIC, L.A., MOSCOW (for the L.A. and Moscow units), 2ND UNIT, etc. See more »
Just left the TriBeCa Film Festival where the film premiered, and I have to say, the film was superb. Everyone in the film is outstanding and Danny Boyle does a brilliant job handling some of the greatest songs ever written. Speaking of that, The Beatles legacy will forever live on with this film.
