Love and Mercy
Directed by Bill Pohlad (River Road Entertainment/Battle Mountain Films, 2015)

Brian Wilson was a gifted yet troubled songwriter. In Love and Mercy, Bill Pohlad explores two critical periods in Wilson's life: the mid ‘60s, when he produced the Beach Boys’ highly regarded Pet Sounds album, and the ‘80s, when Wilson was under the dangerous influence of therapist Eugene Landry (Paul Giamatti).
