Roadside Attractions debuted the trailer for Love & Mercy, an upcoming American biographical film directed by Bill Pohlad, written by Oren Moverman & Michael Alan Lerner.

It stars John Cusack, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti.

“In the 1960s, young songwriter and recording savant Brian Wilson (Paul Dano) finds himself in the midst of extraordinary success after scoring numerous hit records with the Beach Boys.

Following a panic attack, he resigns from concert touring and ventures into the studio intent on removing the group’s associations with surf music by creating the greatest album ever: Pet Sounds. Meanwhile, his grip on reality slowly loosens once his recent psychedelic experiences begin to flourish scattered voices in his head.

Later, in the 1980s, a now-middle-aged Wilson (John Cusack) is shown to be a broken, confused man under the pharmacological and legal thrall of therapist Dr. Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti).

After meeting Cadillac saleswoman Melinda Ledbetter (Elizabeth Banks), she is determined to save Wilson from Landy’s manipulation.”

Love & Mercy is set for June 5, 2015 release.
