Beyond the Sea

Beyond the Sea is a biopic about the life and times of Bobby Darin.
Both wonderfully directed and performed by Kevin Spacey.
Loved the jazz big band arrangements and the fact that Spacey actually did his own singing (an uncanny imitation), Spacey is a marvel.
Though the movie did not quite take off for me, perhaps because I had such high expectations for it, but there's a quote I quite like ~
"People hear what they see"

Another sweet find is one of the songs in the movie ~ Dream Lover, only because I vaguely remember it when I was much much younger.

Dream Lover
Ev'ry night, I hope and pray
A dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms
And know the magic of her charms
