Love and Mercy - I recommend this movie to my oldies enthusiast friends

Everybody doesn't like something, but nobody doesn't like America's Band, the Beach Boys.  The group certainly has passed the test of time as they have recorded and given concerts since the early 1960s.  Sadly Carl and Dennis Wilson passed away years ago.

This movie directed Bill Pohlad discusses the psychological problems of Brian Wilson and his relationship with psychotherapist Dr. Eugene Landy.  In the past I have criticized biopics that do not use a chronological approach, but I was impressed the way this film went back and forth between Brian Wilson in the 1960s and 1980s.  John Cusack played the older Brian while Paul Dano played Brian in the 1960s.  There were brief scenes of the actors in the studio working on songs that became big hits for the Beach Boys.

I highly recommend this film for my oldies enthusiast friends
