During the 1960s, The Beach Boys were the biggest American band in the world. With their sunny California persona and distinctive sound, they created some of the most iconic music of the time. This unconventional biopic tells the story of their leader Brian Wilson, a genius, but also a man plagued with anxieties and mental health struggles. Jumping between the 1960s and Wilson’s troubled relationship with drugs and his psychotherapist in the 1980s, we see him both at the height of his creativity and having lost all grip on reality. This is a moving take on the potential costs of pursuing perfection, yet Wilson ultimately arrives at an extraordinary personal and creative breakthrough.
