YEN - - REVIEWS -

Split­ting Brian Wil­son’s life into two parts, Bill Pohlad’s biopic of the Beach Boys mu­si­cian stars the mag­nif­i­cent Paul Dano as Wil­son dur­ing the '60s and con­trasts it with John Cu­sack’s lay­ered per­for­mance of Wil­son’s men­tal break­down 20 years later. Less sun and surf­ing and more a weighty and il­lu­mi­nat­ing char­ac­ter study.
