MONDAY March 20th, 2017 ****** Love & Mercy ***** directed by Bill Pohlad ** starring John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks

LOVE-AND-MERCY-POSTER

Love & Mercy takes its title from the opening track of Brian Wilson’s 1988 solo album, and is about two commodities in very short supply. This very absorbing, heartfelt movie based on the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson is written by Oren Moverman and Michael A Lerner, and directed by Bill Pohlad. It’s creative and experimental in just the right spirit, and faces off two different Brians, portrayed by two different actors, Paul Dano and John Cusack.
