This understated charmer didn’t get the audience love it deserved during its cineplex run, so give it a go now that it’s on DVD. It’s a high-concept premise: a British musician wakes up after an accident to find that he’s the only person who remembers that the Beatles and their music ever existed. He eventually decides to start performing their songs as if they are his own, and stardom ensues. Can he manage his feelings of guilt? Himesh Patel gives a star-making performance as the musician, and Ed Sheeran appears as himself in an uttering winning extended cameo. I had a few problems with the logic and with a scene where the musician visits a familiar legend, but “Yesterday” is a breezy comedy with heart.
