This biopic of Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson focuses on two distinct periods in the songwriter's life. One timeline follows a young Wilson (Paul Dano) as he quits performing live in order to focus on the creation of the album Pet Sounds. It’s during this period of intense work that Wilson's mental-health issues worsen.
The other timeline features John Cusack as an older Wilson, as he attempts to escape the influence of a manipulative doctor (Paul Giamatti) who has become a totalitarianuru. But in this period he also meets a car saleswoman named Melinda (Elizabeth Banks), who will help him find his way through.
Rated PG-13; 120 Minutes. Watch the trailer.
