Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road
Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road is a deeply personal documentary that explores the life and career of Brian Wilson, the legendary songwriter and cofounder of the Beach Boys, through a literal and metaphorical road trip across Los Angeles, Brian's hometown. With Rolling Stone editor Jason Fine behind the wheel and Brian selecting the music, the two revisit many of the periods and locations integral in shaping Brian’s life. Incorporating fascinating anecdotes and interviews with a diverse set of musicians that were profoundly inspired by Brian’s musical legacy, including Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Nick Jonas, Linda Perry, Jakob Dylan and Taylor Hawkins, the film also features over 50 of Brian’s most iconic hits, rare tracks, never-before-heard demos, and his own personal home movies and photo albums. With honesty and humor, this intimate, unconventional, and deeply revealing portrait of one of rock & roll’s most legendary - and most enigmatic - icons, explores The Beach Boys cofounder’s life in music, his struggles with mental illness, and the daily rhythms of his life.
