A lovely film, and no less that what we have come to expect from Curtis. I look forward to watching this with my Beatles-loving parents at Christmas, even if it'll only be in 1080p.

I'm not bothered about cultural appropriation but how hasn't this film been slammed by the people obsessed by these things? Does it only go one way?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to watching it. I've heard only good things about it.

I didn't have big expectations, but Yesterday was the most "refreshing" comedy i've seen this year.
Additionally liked it even better than other musical movies like Bohemian Rhapsody or Rocketman.

It's really worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet. :)

I've not seen the film either but judging by the trailer / reviews I'm pretty sure the main character is British, so the Beatles and British pop music in general is his culture. He just happens to be of Indian descent.

Agreed - The main character, played well by Himesh Patel, is British of Indian descent (shoutout to Sanjeev Bhaskar and Meera Syal, great as his parents) so there should be no worries about cultural appropriation. Besides that, he's playing a fictional character created specifically for the film, not an existing character who has been "appropriated" for the purposes of the production such as BBC's recent version of Les Misérables.

As to the film itself - if you like Richard Curtis and/or the Beatles music you'll enjoy it. If you think Love Actually is a nauseating piece of saccharine middle-class tripe you'll hate it. Lily James is wasted, and as for that ending.........

I found the lead and the film pretty underwhelming. A far too failed attempt at even being twee enough to be twee.
Suddenly I hear The Clash in mind...

Love Actually is in my Top 5 all-time favourites so I'm going out today to get this to watch with guests coming over on the weekend.

I understand why people enjoy this kind of film, it's just not for me. The world would be a pretty boring place if we are liked the same thing. :)

Loved this film, great premise, brilliant interpretations of the songs and a real feelgood factor.

One bit astounded me
I was convinced the Lennon bit was CGI trickery, I was amazed when I found out who it was.

I actually got quite emotional at that bit, which caught me off guard..if anything, this film reminded how good the Beatles were/are, and how they would be missed, if they never existed

Has anyone actually seen this at the SRP of £19.99, or is that a typo? Seems to be £24.99 everywhere online.

I think this type of film will drop in price or be in two for one deals shortly. But no..£24.99 everywhere

I was ready to warm to this film, but I couldn't make it through. Ed Sheeran is appalling in it. It's really awkward when he's on screen as the acting is so bad. The film's biggest flaw though, is the fact the lead guy cannot sing. Not even slightly.
