The critically acclaimed musical biopic about the fascinating life of the Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson, Love &Mercy is an unconventional portrait of Brian Wilson, singer and songwriter for The Beach Boys. The film intimately examines the unique journey and ultimate salvation of this musical icon, whose success came at an extraordinary personal cost.
Golden Globe® nominee John Cusack stars in one of the best performances of his career, alongside Paul Dano as troubled musical genius Brian Wilson at two pivotal stages of his life—the 1960s, at the peak of The Beach Boys’ fame and the 1980s, as Brian reclaims his life after a mental breakdown. They are joined by Elizabeth Banks as Wilson’s present-day wife Melinda, and two-time Golden Globe® winner Paul Giamatti.
I grew up listening to the Beach Boys with my dad. I had no idea of Brian Wilson's mental illness until I watched this movie. It was a fascinating exploration into the mind of a prolific musical genius. For anyone who loves the Beach Boys, this is a must-see movie. I've been a John Cusack fan since Say Anything, and this is maybe my favorite performance.
