Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey (AMERICAN BEAUTY) directs and stars in this gripping biopic of one of America’s greatest performers, Bobby Darin. Working his way from shady nightclubs to his dream destination, The Copacabana, Darin lived a rags-to- riches life. He was a marvel at singing, songwriting, and performing such hits as “Splish Splash,” “Mack the Knife” and more, stealing the hearts of fans everywhere – despite the suffering of his own heart.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Many people under 40 may not even remember Bobby Darin, let alone know about his remarkable life story. Beyond the Sea may rectify that problem and stand as a wonderful tribute to an amazing talent who left us all too soon.
Rotten: Your standard biopic boilerplate, with a lot of self-reflexive hokum.
Fresh: If Spacey's age problem proves an insurmountable distraction for literalists and Darin fans, his admirers will no doubt relish the chance to watch him sing, dance and basically take over the screen for two hours.
Rotten: This vainglorious biopic about Bobby Darin is really about what the '60s pop singer and actor means to Kevin Spacey.
