Love And Mercy – Official UK Trailer #1 – John Cusack

Love and Mercy begins in the 1960s, as Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson (Paul Dano) struggles with emerging psychosis as he attempts to craft his avant-garde pop masterpiece. In the 1980s, as portrayed by John Cusack, Wilson is a broken, confused man under the 24-hour watch of shady therapist Dr Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti).

The film also stars Elizabeth Banks, Jake Abel, Kenny Wormald and ET‘s Dee Wallace, and while I’m not familiar with Paul Dano, I do enjoy most things with Cusack. However, I can’t quite see him as Brian Wilson, though.

Love and Mercy is released in the UK on July 10th and it does look an intriguing drama.
