LEONIA, N.J. -- The Leonia Public Library will screen "Love & Mercy" Monday.
In the 1960s, young songwriter and recording savant Brian Wilson, played by 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 creating "the greatest album ever made," Pet Sounds. Meanwhile, his grip on reality slowly loosens as he attempts to cope with the overwhelming voices in his head.
In the 1980s, a middle-aged Wilson (John Cusack) is shown to be a broken, confused man under the pharmacological and legal thrall of his abusive therapist Dr. Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti).
After meeting Wilson, Cadillac saleswoman Melinda Ledbetter, played by Elizabeth Banks, is determined to save him from Landy's manipulation.
The screening begins at 3:30 p.m. at the library, 227 Fort Lee Road. For more information, call 201-592-5770.
