Immediately fascinating
9 August 2019 | by Phil_ChesterSee all my reviews

I was aware of The Beach Boys and had even heard one or two of their songs, but I would never describe myself as a fan. I watched this out of idle interest and was immediately fascinated and captured by the story. It gave me a whole new level of appreciation for The Beach Boys and I'm really glad I watched this. Recommended.
