Yesterday ★★½

Chicago Critics Film Festival 2019

Yesterday world-builds a creative premise into a broadly successful narrative until the final 20 minutes of the film which are the most hokey ridiculous cheesy final 20 minutes of a film I may have ever seen. The ending really, really sours the great thematic and plot developments achieved in the beginning and especially the middle of the film. There is also one very unsatisfying plot resolution that the script writer (the guy from Love Actually.................) decided to cash-in on as a joke. The passing but not noteworthy acting and the script decisions really sank Yesterday.
