Synopsis
Bill Pohlad's LOVE & MERCY, a biopic of Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson, focuses on two distinct periods in the songwriter's life. One timeline follows Wilson (played as a younger man by Paul Dano) as he quits performing live in order to focus on the creation of the album PET SOUNDS, the single "Good Vibrations," and the eventually discarded album SMILE. During this period of intense work, Wilson's mental-health issues grow worse. The other section of the film features John Cusack as an older Wilson, as he attempts to escape the influence of a manipulative doctor (Paul Giamatti) who has become a totalitarian guru to him. Helping him in this endeavor is a car saleswoman named Melinda (Elizabeth Banks). LOVE & MERCY screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"LOVE & MERCY draws its closest parallel to PET SOUNDS and SMILE, masterworks of composition and arrangement....Emotionally acute..."
A.V. Club (4 Jun 2015, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"In Bill Pohlad’s energizing, meticulously crafted, nearly pitch-perfect LOVE & MERCY, Paul Dano plays Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys as a young man at his creative height in the 1960s..."
Richard Roeper (4 Jun 2015, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "This is the film Brian Wilson’s talent deserves: original, smart and affecting."
Ian Freer (3 Jul 2015, )
Los Angeles Times
"The best, most involving sections of LOVE & MERCY take place in the 1960s and star Dano as a brilliant creator of pop music unlike any that had been heard before."
Kenneth Turan (4 Jun 2015, )
New York Times
"[A] smart, compassionate, refreshingly unconventional biopic directed by Bill Pohlad....It's a loving tribute to the Beach Boys and the man responsible for their distinctive sound, but it goes to deeper and stranger places than most movies of its kind..."
A. O. Scott (5 Jun 2015, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "The result is a story that’s hair-raisingly watchable and frequently moving, regardless of what you believe you might already know of Wilson’s life."
Glenn Kenny (5 Jun 2015, )
Total Film
"LOVE & MERCY is a cine-song of sun-glazed innocence and bruised experience, surfing between excruciating suffering and extraordinary redemption. It makes you cry, but sort of in a good way."
Kevin Harley (6 Jul 2015, )
