Love and Mercy story of Brian Wilson


Love & Mercy, the new drama that tells the story of the Beach Boys’ musical mastermind Brian Wilson as he attempts to reclaim his life after years mired in drugs and mental illness. The movie also depicts Wilson’s creative genius.

Love & Mercy, which was directed by 12 Years a Slave producer Bill Pohlad, cuts back and forth between Wilson in his younger years (played by Paul Dano) and an older, more isolated Wilson (John Cusack) who’s trying to get out from under the thumb of his controlling psychiatrist, Dr. Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti).

It hits Event Cinemas on Thursday 25 June.
