Beyond the Sea - January 2005

Bio-pics of famous musicians are difficult to pull off— witness the success of "Ray" (Ray Charles) or the failure of "De-Lovely" (Cole Porter). "Beyond the Sea" is Kevin Spacey’s tribute to Bobby Darin. The music is great, but most of Darin’s life was whitewashed, not to mention that Spacey is a decade older than Darin was at the time of his death. I can’t recommend it, but I could listen to the soundtrack over and over.
