This delightful musical comedy, directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Richard Curtis, is fresh and funny with a wonderful cast and – most importantly – plenty of wonderful music. Himesh Patel stars as struggling singer-songwriter Jack Malik, who has an accident during a mysterious global blackout and wakes to a world where the Beatles never existed. With help from his tough-as-nails US agent, Mandi (Kate McKinnon), he becomes a star, but risks losing his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James). Will he let it be, or go back to where he once belonged? [12A]
