As one of the most influential groups in American music history, the Beach Boys provided the soundtrack to the '60s and '70s.

Their leader and co-founder Brian Wilson is regarded as an innovator of popular music and the creative force behind some of the most celebrated recordings in rock history. Despite his musical genius, Brian struggled with personal issues and rode a roller coaster that threatened everything he worked so hard to create.

  • 5 stars "I enjoyed this movie very much. I was never a big Beach Boys fan but I was fascinated to learn about the life of Brian Wilson, a brilliant singer, song writer and music writer. After the movie, I went online to learn more about his life and to see him live on videos. I was just so intrigued to know more about this amazing genius."
