Love & Mercy, a film based on the story of The Beach Boys, is set for release on June 5 of this year. Based on the trailer below, I think it looks promising. Particularly with the thoughtful casting of terrific actor Paul Dano as a young Brian Wilson and John Cusack as an older Wilson, it seems as if the film is a hopeful bet for presenting the rich history of the band and the story of the troubled Wilson in a nuanced and honest way. Wilson himself played a role in the development of the film, which hopefully added some realism and integrity to the production. Esquire conducted a recent interview with Brian Wilson, which you can read here.
