A film by Jay Craven
Based on the novel by Guy de Maupassant
Starring Golden Globe winner, Jacqueline Bisset, Christian Coulson, Diane Guerrero, Shane Patrick Kearns, Gordon Clapp, and Susan Kelechi Watson.

PETER AND JOHN tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives news of a strange inheritance and both brothers grow attracted to a mysterious young woman who arrives on their island. Based on Guy de Maupassant’s 19th century seaside novel, Pierre et Jean is widely credited for changing the course of narrative fiction through its complex and intense psychological characterizations of a family brought to the breaking point by startling revelations.

“Peter and John has an almost mythic quality. With exceptional visual and auditory beauty, the film’s small story, precisely told, is relevant, as good art is, beyond its specific setting.”

—Provincetown Banner

“It sizzles underneath its beautiful island scenery and authentic 1800s propriety. The performances and mystery remain riveting, with Jacqueline Bisset a powerhouse.

—The Rutland Herald and Times Argus

“Stunning. Craven’s film is reminiscent of Merchant-Ivory period pieces like “The Europeans” in that it’s character-driven. Watching the movie is like reading a good book–you stick with it, and you’re glad you did.”

—Cape Cod Times

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes 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, BBC’s Eastenders) 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, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). 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 (Emmy winner 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.

Featuring new versions of The Beatles’ most beloved hits, Yesterday is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (Love Actually, About A Boy, the Bridget Jones series) alongside Matthew James Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew. Curtis and Boyle also produce. Nick Angel, Lee Brazier and Liza Chasin serve as executive producers.

"Whether you’re religious or not, you owe it to yourself to see this movie if the chance arises. You’ll see how much love and feeling went into the construction of the resulting album. Additionally, “Amazing Grace” is profoundly moving and extraordinarily soothing. Nowadays we could use a good salve. To paraphrase another gospel standard, if we ever needed this film before, we sure do need it now."
