With no negativity toward Midsommar, that viewing needed an antidote, and Yesterday did the trick.
I’m a Richard Curtis fan, and Yesterday nicely joins his oeuvre.
A fantasy, about an odd natural world event that changes certain attributes of history — inclusive of virtually anyone recalling a group called The Beatles, or their songbook.
As directed by Danny Boyle, the endeavor works, with a single exception – at least to my mind.
Kate McKinnon is included in the cast, and while she can be superb in short TV comedy sketches, she seems unable to act with any serious purpose. Her switch is set to overkill/loud at all times, and it’s a scene destroyer.
Other than that, an interesting take on an alternate universe.
As a 4k Blu-ray, it’s the real thing, having been shot in 8k, with a 4k digital master.
All is good.
Very good, actually.
And a great deal of fun.
