To celebrate the release of Yesterday, the up-coming comedy from director Danny Boyle, Universal Pictures Ireland commissioned gardener Elma Fenton to create a garden that meditates on the reflective power of nature and music at Bloom 2019.
To officially launch the Yesterday, “What If…” show garden, Universal Pictures Ireland welcomed the stars of Derry Girls Nicola Coughlan and Dylan Llewellyn to Phoenix Park to check it out.
This year, visitors to Bloom are invited to reflect on their own “what ifs…” as they take a moment on the loveseat situated within a submarine yellow heart.
The garden is surrounded by Birch trees, a wood that is often used to make musical instruments, and accompanied by the sound of 97 BPM (beats per minute), the tempo of the song Yesterday, the world’s most recorded song.
The film Yesterday follows the story of Jack Malik (Himesh Patel), a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James).
After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed.
Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack becomes on overnight sensation with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Kate McKinnon).
But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.
Yesterday is released in cinemas nationwide on June 28th.
