'Love & Mercy' tells the true story behind the musical visionary who challenged the sound of the 1960s. Brian Wilson in the ‘60s (Paul Dano) makes the decision to stop touring with the Beach Boys and focuses on experimenting with a new sound that would set the tone for the decade. “Pet Sounds” is one of the most innovative and influential musical albums of all time, featuring classic hits ‘God Only Knows’ and ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’.

The 1980s Brian Wilson (John Cusack) finds the true meaning of life when he meets the woman who would turn out to be his soul mate, protector and future wife, Melinda Ledbetter (Elizabeth Banks). It is Melinda’s devotion and love that forces Brian to slowly discover what’s best about himself and how the music holds him together. Melinda brings him a third-act redemption that pulls him back into life.

Entranced by the music and love story, 'Love & Mercy' takes audiences on a compelling journey into the life and mind of Brian Wilson.
