Yesterday is out in theaters today — yes, it sounds really complicated, but it’s really good.
Written by Richard Curtis (Love Actually) and directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire), Yesterday tells the story of a failed singer-songwriter Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) who, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, wakes up to discover that The Beatles never existed. Taking this opportunity to become the singer-songwriter he always wanted to be, he begins to perform their songs and becomes an overnight sensation. While all of this is going on, there is a love story between Jack and his childhood best friend Ellie (Lily James).
The Nerds of Color got to chat with Himesh Patel during the Yesterday press junket and played a little game we liked to call: Is it a Beatles song or Kanye West’s tweets? Trust us, we were surprised too!
