Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle come together for a bizarre fantasy comedy film where Jack (played by Himesh Patel) is the ONLY person in the world that remembers the band The Beatles. He uses this to his advantage by pretending to be the song-writer behind all of their hits and gets famous. For those that don’t know, Danny Boyle directed the ‘Trainspotting’ films, and Richard Curtis co-created and wrote ‘Blackadder’ and ‘Mr. Bean’.
I don’t think this will end up in the pantheon of great art like the aforementioned titles (well… Trainspotting 2 less so) but it looks like it could be enjoyable. Certainly worth a try at the very least.
6/10 – Decent
