USA 2014, 121 min, bio/drama.
Director: Bill Pohlad
Starring: Paul Dano, John Cusack, Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti

A wonderfully innervating cure for the common musical biopic. Bill Pohlad’s Love & Mercy vibrantly illuminates two major breakthroughs — one artistic, one personal — in the life of The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson.” Variety

A movie about the musician and songwriter Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys presented in a parallel narrative covering two periods of his life. The first, the 1960s, depicts the onset of his struggles with psychosis while the second, the 1980s, shows us his ultimate redemption and release from the grasp of a shady therapist.

The film is a refreshing surprise that reflects Wilson’s blaring imagination with its own ingenious structure, visual approach, sound design and poetic sensibility.
