Love & Mercy

Paul Dano and John Cusack are Brian Wilson 6/5

One of our most distinguished producers, Bill Pohlad (Brokeback Mountain, Into the Wild, The Tree of Life, 12 Years A Slave) becomes a major director with a love letter to Brian Wilson, the tortured genius who put The Beach Boys on the map. Paul Dano and John Cusack play the musical wizard as a young man and in middle age, respectively. The ever-resourceful Paul Giamatti is the shrink who medicates Brian into submission and Elizabeth Banks is Melinda, the woman whose unconditional love rescues him from bondage. The road from "Surfin' U.S.A." to "Good Vibrations" and beyond is paved with paternal abuse and emerging psychosis as a pop hitmaker becomes a one-man answer to The Beatles across the waves. God only knows where we'd be without him. Love & Mercy plays like a sixties' symphony, the soundtrack of our lives.

U.S, 2014, 120 min, 2K DCP, Dir. Bill Pohlad, Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, drug content and language
