Filmmaker Danny Boyle's rock comedy "Yesterday" has been chosen as the closing night film for the Tribeca Film Festival.
The film, penned by Richard Curtis, features Himesh Patel as a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the support of his childhood best friend, played by Lily James.
"This isn't a time travel movie but it feels like introducing the Beatles music to America for the first time-again. Absolutely delighted that our film has been chosen to be the closing film of the Tribeca Film Festival. A great honour in a great city," said Boyle.
Documentary Film "The Apollo", directed by Roger Ross Williams, will open the festival, reported Variety.
The film extravaganza will hold a pair of Gala Anniversary screenings with a 40th anniversary showing of a never-before-seen restored version of Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now and the 30th anniversary and cast reunion of "Say Anything"
Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 24 to May 4.
