Yesterday director Danny Boyle: Where better to go for a love story than The Beatles?
Danny Boyle is known for directing popular films like Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting. His next, Yesterday, is about a man who lives in a world where everyone but him has no memory of The Beatles. Being a struggling musician himself, he passes off their music as his own. He gains fame of course, but ends up living a dual life.
Boyle spoke about the message of the film and said that its a love story. “Somebody said something about the number of times the word love appears in The Beatles songs compared to the Bible. By some extraordinary margin, The Beatles win hands down,” he said
“I hope thats what people will take out of this film: that its a love story. So where better to go for a love story than The Beatles? A dual love story. A love story to this music, which is a part of world culture now, and a beautiful unexpected love story that runs alongside it that benefits from the story arc that takes you on such a roller-coaster journey,” he added.
