Brian Wilson is a true pop visionary.
Expanding the lexicon of popular music with a series of daring experiments, his later mental decline – and subsequent resurrection – is set to be given the biopic treatment.
'Love & Mercy' is directed by Bill Pohlad, and tells two stories: how Brian Wilson conquered the pop sphere but lost himself in the process, and how his life blossomed after meeting his wife Melinda.
Paul Dano and John Cusack split the role, covering young and old Brian Wilson, respectively. The first trailer is online now – it's powerful stuff.
'Love & Mercy' will be released on June 5th.
