VENICE REPORT: LOVE & MERCY


You want another Ray? Or another Walk the Line? No, you don't, but you may want Love & Mercy, starring Paul Dano and John Cusack as Brian Wilson. Producer Bill Pohlad makes his directorial debut, co-written by Oren Moverman, who also co-wrote another alternative musical biopic in Todd Haynes' I'm Not There. Some positive reactions from Andrew Barker at Variety, John DeFore at The Hollywood Reporter and Eric Kohn at IndieWire.
