Do Any of The Beatles Appear in 'Yesterday'?

By

Danny Boyle's latest film, Yesterday, is structured around a fantastical premise: What would happen if you woke up one day and everyone had no idea who the Beatles were — except you?

Jack Malik is a frustrated musician who's trying to carve out a career of his own with a ton of encouragement from his childhood best friend, Ellie.

As he starts to believe that his dream of becoming a famous musician will never come to fruition, Jack gets in a "freak bus accident" that happens to occur at the same time as a massive, worldwide blackout.

When he comes to, he's the only person in the entire world who's heard of The Beatles or knows their songs. So, he starts singing them as his own and he becomes an immediate success, thanks to the help of his agent.
