338f7d6c-162b-40b8-a3e3-1c09a21924f0

Behind the fun fun fun of The Beach Boys was the fascinating and genius singer/songwriter Brian Wilson. Love & Mercy presents an unconventional portrait of the iconic Wilson — portrayed by two actors, Paul Dano in the ’60s and John Cusack in the ’80s — and examines his musical brilliance, personal voyage and ultimate salvation. Love & Mercy, co-written by Oscar® nominated screenwriter Oren Moverman, also stars Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti, and is directed by Bill Pohlad, known as the Academy Award-nominated producer for such bold films as Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave, Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, Sean Penn’s Into the Wild and Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain.  Love & Mercy opens in theaters on June 5th
