With the release of Love and Mercy this weekend, I was thinking about other types of movies like it. For those who don’t know, this one showcases the life story of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, told through two different actor portrayals, Paul Dano as young Brian and John Cusack as the older version. It’s been getting great reviews and I can’t wait to see it. Every year there seems to be one of these movies that chart the rise and fall stories of out favorite musicians. Last year it was Jersey Boys, a fun musical ride I can’t recommend enough. But it got me thinking what the best music bio films are. After looking around and doing some research, here’s what I came up with.
