Hoping for something different in the hot months?
"Love & Mercy"
In theaters: June 5
Director: Bill Pohlad
Cast: Paul Dano, John Cusack, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Giamatti, Jake Abel
Why it's a must see: "A beautiful new movie that refuses to fall into the formula that hobbles so many biopics" is how HitFix's Drew McWeeny described Bill Pohlad's "Love & Mercy" at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival. And indeed, any biopic about Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson would be ill-served by derivation. How can you pass up a flick like this in the SUMMER?
