Yesterday (2019)

So apparently, we only make films about or based on the music of iconic British musical legends these days? With the likes of Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman recently celebrating Queen and Elton John, it feels only natural that that particular starter and main course combo should be finished off with a Beatles related dessert. Unlike…

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018)
