    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Usually I'd start a movie review on Letterboxd with a silly gag related to the movie. But here, I don't think I can. This was a little too hard to stomach for me.


    So hey, quick review of this for you all - purely because I wanted to get my thoughts out there. And yeah, I know I said 'movie', but technically this is a miniseries - so think of it like a 5.5 hour movie and we're good to…

    'So hey. I've got a few Beatles gags. Shall we make a whole movie about them?'


    Yesterday is a film made by the director of Trainspotting along with the writer of Love Actually. And it's just as messy as it sounds. This isn't me being horrible to Danny Boyle or Richard Curtis either - I love Boyle's movies and Curtis has written some incredible comedy. But mix these two minds together to try and make a romcom and it falls…
