The other night I saw an inspiring movie, “Love and Mercy,” a biopic about Brian Wilson, the creative genius behind The Beach Boys. The film traces the life of Brian from his abusive childhood to the making of his magnum opus, “Pet Sounds,” to his near-death from drugs––both illegal and prescribed. The soaring soundtrack is easy to listen to, but the scenes of self-destruction are hard to watch. Ultimately, though, “Love and Mercy” is a redemption story. And God only knows how much I love those.
