Yesterday – Film Society of Cooperstown
The Film Society of Cooperstown’s third season begins on January 15 with “Yesterday” (2019).
In the romantic comedy “Yesterday,” a struggling musician realizes he’s the only person on Earth who can remember The Beatles after waking up in an alternate timeline where they never existed.
Directed by Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “Trainspotting,” “28 Days Later”), it stars Himesh Patel as struggling musician who, after an accident, finds himself the only person who remembers the Fab Four and becomes famous after taking credit for their songs. The film also stars Lily James and Kate McKinnon, as well as Ed Sheeran, who plays a fictionalized version of himself.
Join us, and longtime rock tour manager John Draper, for a night of music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life, the PG-13 rated film, which features new versions of The Beatles’ most beloved hits, clocks in at 116 minutes.
