In the Yesterday Movie, a miracle somehow consigns the Beatles to oblivion. But it also produces several other changes that are mentioned in the movie without much explanation. Cigarette smoking seems to have been forgotten, and Coca Cola, and here and there a few other things. Several musical groups that existed in fact are noted in the movie for their non-existence.
- My take on all of this was that other changes resulted from the disappearance of the Beatles.
- But my son, who saw the movie with me, thought that at least some of these changes were independent and not results of the Beatles' disappearance.
Neither alternative seems perfectly sensible to me.
Why did they made those changes in the story?
