Bill Pohlad’s Love & Mercy, a biopic of the Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson focuses on two distinct period in the songwriter’s life. The movie intercuts the time when Wilson (played in these sections of the film by Paul Dano quit 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 time, Wilson’s mental health issues grow worse. The other sections of the film feature John Cusack as Wilson, and features him attempting 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 care saleswoman Melinda (Elizabeth Banks). Love & Mercy screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
