7. Yesterday

Well, as its name suggests, Yesterday is a movie based on the Beatles song — in fact, the Beatles discography. That's because here we know the story of Jack Malik, a singer-songwriter who, after suffering an accident, wakes up in a reality in which several things we know today never existed, among them the Beatles. He, however, is the only one who remembers the existence of the English band and its repertoire, and uses them to be successful as a performer (but in the eyes of everyone as a creator).

Despite the Portuguese name being A Second Chance for Love , this feature film by Paul Feig is originally called Last Christmas , exactly like the group's Christmas hit. Wham!. It's a romantic Christmas comedy, as our escapist moments look for: Kate, a woman who lives in London and works as an elf in a festive shop all year, one day meets Tom, a friendly and hard-to-find young man. What she didn't expect, however, is that the simple presence of Tom in her life would help her get her life back on track, improving her relationships with her family, her job and her friends.
