Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal.
From Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire," "Trainspotting") and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis ("Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Love Actually") comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.
Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James). But after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that the Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.
Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.
