Yesterday

Yesterday ★★½

Someone, or maybe multiple someones, said this is the least interesting movie you could make from this premise, and they are absolutely right. The performers are charming, the dialogue’s lively, the songs are obviously terrific, Kate McKinnon’s really funny as the manager from hell, and ... that’s about it? The central question — “What would a world without the Beatles look like?” — is not only not answered, no attempt is made to answer it. (Also I found one scene near the end that I guess is supposed to be uplifting and sweet kind of gross?)
