More than 10-years in the making, the movie is a labor of love from Kevin Spacey, and Kate Bosworth is superb as Darin's charming wife Sandra Dee.

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.

Kevin Spacey's dedication is clear, both in his performance as Darin and in his wonderful direction

holds nothing back. When it's time for this admittedly offbeat biography to swing, the exuberance of its director-star washes away a lot of reservations.

Serious moments have softened edges, the film rarely feels heavy. Always interesting and entertaining, but never especially deep and certainly not dark.

Much like basking in front of your own image, Spacey's Beyond the Sea is a vanity project, albeit one with some interesting layers surrounding it.

This is the anti-blockbuster, the slow-burning film that tries to be as cool as the man it's about...

The musical and dance numbers in the film are excellent. The story is compelling.

A vastly entertaining vehicle that showcases Spacey's talents as a song-and-dance man as much as it explains Darin's life.

Spacey the actor bails out Spacey the director. He's been talking about his abiding love of Darin for quite some time, and he nails Darin in look, deed and buttery croon, making up for many of the film's structural deficiencies.

'A film that celebrates a great talent taken away too soon, Beyond the Sea is sure to set your toes tapping.'

Darin's life is just a jumping-off point for The Kevin Spacey Show, which would probably stink like hubris were Spacey not such a dazzling, enthusiastic performer.
