Love & Mercy presents an unconventional portrait of Brian Wilson, the mercurial singer and songwriter. Set against the era-defining catalogue of The Beach Boys’ music, the film intimately examines the personal voyage and ultimate salvation of the icon whose success came at an extraordinary personal cost. Paul Dano (War and Peace) and John Cusack convincingly portray the younger and older Brian Wilson.
