Yesterday is shown at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 11 December, presented by Somerset Moviola and the Nunney Village Hall Committee.

Yesterday is a 2019 romantic comedy film directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and written by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill), based on a story by Jack Barth and Curtis.

This is a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life. Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James).

Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes.

But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

Yesterday has a 12A rating. Films rated 12A are suitable for children aged 12 and over. However, people younger than 12 may see a 12A so long as they are accompanied by an adult.

In such circumstances, responsibility for allowing a child under 12 to view lies with the accompanying adult.

Yesterday is shown at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 11 December at 7.30pm. Door open at 7pm. Seats cannot be reserved, so please come early.

Tickets cost £5 in advance at the George Inn and Moat & Turret ‘Cafe by the Castle’ in Nunney or £6 on the door. Advance booking is highly recommended (the film nights frequently sell out in advance!).

A licensed bar and ice creams will be available. The bar opens at 7pm. The film programme begins at 7.30pm.
