Film Night: Friday 15th March

“Love & Mercy”(12A)

An unconventional portrait of Brian Wilson, the iconic singer/songwriter lead of The Beach Boys, for whom success came at extraordinary personal cost.  Set against the era-defining catalogue of his music, it examines his personal voyage and ultimate salvation by chronicling two key periods in his life – his rise to fame then mental decline under the control of a Svengali-like therapist, eventually overcome by the burgeoning relationship with his future wife. 

This intense look at the fragility of creative genius is  sometimes dark & compelling but insightful & respectful too.  Paul Dano is superb & John Cusack equally impressive as the young & middle-aged Wilson respectively – in one of the finest and most authentic rock biopics ever made.
