What if, by some miracle, The Beatles never existed and only you remembered their music. That’s the conceit behind the new film, “Yesterday,” directed by Danny Boyle. It stars Himesh Patel as Jack, an aspiring singer-songwriter who claims the music of the Fab Four as his own. Patel performed all the music for his first lead role in a major motion picture. When John Horn spoke with Patel, they talked about his audition process and took an impromptu quiz on The Beatles.
