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
Leading up to the dramatic event during the blackout, the unnerving music is actually the crescendo from "A Day in the Life". It is used again later on in the film. See more »
The first time Jack googles the Beatles in his room, there is a Killers poster on the wall behind him. The Killers were formed after their lead singer Brandon Flowers was inspired by an Oasis concert he had attended. Later in the movie, it is established that Oasis, in addition to The Beatles, had been wiped from existence as a result of the blackout. Therefore, The Killers would likely not exist as well because Brandon Flowers would not have attended an Oasis concert. Response: There is no way to know if The Killers would have been created if Oasis did not exist. In the alternate reality that movie creates, Brandon Flowers would have been inspired to form a band while watching a different concert. See more »
[Jack finishes playing 'Yesterday' by The Beatles]
When did you write that?
I didn't write it. Paul McCartney wrote it, The Beatles wrote it.

As well as the credits being shown in a Beatles-style font, whenever a name starts with a B the letter B is larger than the rest of the text. See more »
Refreshingly original and entertaining. The story flows and the characters are relatable and well developed. Not what I expected from the trailer but I liked it better than what I expected. So nice to see someone take a chance on an original story.
