“Yesterday, I believe I would never have done what I did today. I feel like something important has happened to me. Is this possible?

Bringing David Mitchell’s much acclaimed novel to the screen is a hard ask because it covers diverse stories spread across time from 1849, stopping at 1936, 1973, 2012, 2144, and finally a post-apocalyptic 2321... just not necessarily in that order, and the whole thing is introduced/ended from another time period even further in the future which forms a narration of sorts by a heavily tattooed Tribal Leader named Zach (Tom Hanks).
