Love & Mercy

"You hear the new Beatles? We can't let them get ahead of us!" Back in February, we got our first glimpse at Love & Mercy, the biopic of Beach Boys' singer and songwriter Brian Wilson. The film that played TIFF last year features Paul Dano (Prisoners) and John Cusack playing the music icon at two different points of his life in the 60s and 70s. Now the full trailer for the film has arrived, showcasing both the rise in fame and popularity of Wilson and his surf rock to the struggles he faced due to drug addiction and mental illness. It seems like quite the unique approach to the standard rock biopic, and it looks pretty good. Watch!

Here's the new trailer for Bill Polhad's Love & Mercy from the film's official YouTube:

You can still watch the first trailer for Love & Mercy right here.

Love & Mercy is directed by Bill Polhad (producer of 12 Years a Slave and Brokeback Mountain) and written by Oren Moverman (The Messenger, Rampart). Under the visionary leadership of singer-songwriter Brian Wilson, The Beach Boys redefined the sound of American popular music in the 1960s. But their joyful harmonies and ingenious arrangements concealed Wilson’s private struggle with addiction and mental illness, and by the early seventies he had descended into drug-fueled isolation. Paul Dano and John Cusack bring Wilson to life at different stages of his career with Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti also starring. The film premiered at TIFF last year, and is slated to hit theaters this summer on June 5th. Interested?

    Interesting. The sound is right. But almost any MOTOWN story is more intriguing to me.

    so is paul giamatti the go to for "period piece record producer" in every film now?
    • kitano0
      He's not playing a record producer, he's playing his controversial therapist who helped him up to a point, then started to manipulate him.

    Glad to see Cusack back in something that doesn't star Nic Cage.
  • shiboleth
    yeah, that nostalgia bottom - and Paul Dano with John Cusack back in some normal role - might turn me on watching this ...

    This isn't going to work for me. I like both these actors, especially Cusack, but they just look like Paul Dano and John Cusack to me play-acting someone else. And they sure don't pass the suspend disbelief factor for me as I ain't buyin' that Dano turns into Cusack after aging. They look nothing alike. It's absurd!
