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.
Three 6th grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party.

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
When Jack goes to visit John Lennon it's a reference to what might have happened if the Beatles had not become famous like if they hadn't become famous then John Lennon would've not of been murdered See more »
In the film, Jack and Ellie remark multiple times about the time in middle school where Jack played "Wonderwall" at a talent show, and that was the moment where their friendship blossomed. However, the band Oasis (along with Coke, Cigarettes, and Harry Potter) is one of several well known entities to be non-existent in the alternate world. This means that Ellie would not have any idea what the song "Wonderwall" is. See more »
It's times like this I wish I hadn't given up smoking. I could murder a cigarette.
Yeah. What's a cigarette?

The aspirant singer Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) is struggling to be a great musician with the support of his agent Ellie Appleton (Lily James) and his closer friends. However he is a failure and needs to work in a supermarket to survive. One day there is a blackout and Jack has an accident while riding his bicycle. When he recovers, Ellie gives a new guitar to him and Jack plays "Yesterday". Soon he realizes that the world does not know "The Beatles" and he plays and sings their songs becoming the best musician in the world with a greedy agent. But can he afford the price he has to pay for the stolen success?
"Yesterday" is a delightful fantasy with the story of a world without "The Beatles", coke, cigarettes, USSR and Harry Potter. It is hard to understand Jack´s final decision, but the romantic story is a fantasy so it is very reasonable the conclusion. The sweet Lily James steals the film. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Yesterday"
