Love & mercy by William Pohlad( visu )
12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,544 libraries worldwide
We all know the music, but few know the true story of musical genius, Brian Wilson, and his struggles with brilliance and balance. Love & Mercy paints an unconventional portrait of the artist by interweaving seminal moments from his youth and later life, as it explores how Brian came to be who he is today. The role of Brian Wilson is masterfully shared between Paul Dano as the younger, 1960s Brian; and John Cusack as Wilson in the 1980s. The film explores the many challenges Brian has faced, both from his point of view in his younger years; and from the perspective of his now wife, Melinda who meets Brian in his 40s and under the questionable medical care of Dr. Eugene Landy. The Beach Boys were already experiencing chart topping success with Surfin' Safari, I Get Around, Help Me Rhonda, California Girls and Good Vibrations when Brian found himself driven to move in a new musical direction. Whilst this would ultimately lead to the creation of what is widely ranked as one of the greatest albums of all time - Pet Sounds - and songs like Wouldn't It Be Nice, Sloop John B and God Only Knows; it also lead to the band breaking up and Brian breaking down
