Anyone remember the Beach Boys? It’s been a long time, but I remember listening to their tunes when I was a kid. For you Beach Boys fans out there, I have a fun giveaway for you. Thanks to Lionsgate Home Entertainment, I’m giving away a copy of Love & Mercy on my dad blog. The biopic is about the fascinating life of Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson. Love & Mercy is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital HD. Continue reading to find out how to enter my contest.
Love & Mercy Synopsis
Golden Globe nominee John Cusack (Best Actor, High Fidelity, 2001) stars in “one of the best performances of his career” (The Hollywood Reporter) alongside Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Looper) as troubled musical genius Brian Wilson at two pivotal stages of his life – the 1960s, at the peak of The Beach Boys’ fame and the 1980s, as Brian reclaims his life after a mental breakdown. They are joined by Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games franchise) as Wilson’s present-day wife Melinda, and two-time Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti (Best Actor, Barney’s Version, 2011; Best Actor, John Adams, 2009). Love & Mercy is an unconventional portrait of Brian Wilson (portrayed by both John Cusack and Paul Dano), singer and songwriter for The Beach Boys. The film intimately examines the unique journey and ultimate salvation of this musical icon, whose success came at an extraordinary personal cost.
