Join us this Saturday November 21st for a very special screening of the movie Love & Mercy at the UCD student centre.
Love & Mercy is the movie that we have chosen to do a national cinema tour with in January as part of the First Fortnight Mental Health Arts and Film Festival calling at Dun Laoghaire, Bray, Portlaoise, Galway, Limerick and Kildare.
Love & Mercy presents an unconventional portrait of Brian Wilson, the mercurial singer, songwriter and leader of The Beach Boys. Set against the era-defining catalog of Wilson’s music, the film intimately examines the personal voyage and ultimate salvation of the icon whose success came at extraordinary personal cost. Starring Paul Dano, John Cusack, Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks, Love & Mercy examines two key periods in Wilson’s life. In the 1960s, as the Beach Boys’ leader, Wilson struggles with emerging psychosis as he attempts to craft his avant-garde pop masterpiece, Pet Sounds. In the 1980s, he is a broken, confused man under the 24-hour watch of shady therapist Dr. Eugene Landy.
