4. It May Not Be Right for Kids
Yesterday likely won't attract children, but if you're considering taking the kids/grandkids to introduce them to some of your favorite tunes from back in the day, here's what you need to know:
Jack and Ellie begin the film as "just friends," but gradually grow to express their love for one another. In a mid-movie hotel room scene, they kiss passionately before Ellie (still clothed) walks out, unwilling to participate in a one-night stand. "It's not for me," she says.
Later, however, the two do sleep together before they're married. We see them kiss in a bedroom before the camera cuts away.
Yesterday also has a fair amount of language: "Christ" (5), d--n (4), "God" (3), OMG (3), GD (2), s--t (2), h-ll (2), a-- (1), "Jesus" (1). We also hear the British word "bloody" (4).
Yesterday isn't for everyone. But you don't have to be a Beatles fan to enjoy it.
