| Spacey is beyond of just being a good actor, the man can sing!
Beyond my wildest dreams did I think that respected actor Kevin Spacey had such a spectacular voice singing Bobby Darin songs in the Darin bio flick "Beyond The Sea". Spacey, who also directed and co-wrote the flick, portrays Darin with admirable flair and gusto. His acting performance was definitely the "Splish Splash" of "Beyond the Sea". The legendary Darin died of heart failure at age 37 (which is how old I am, I hope that is not a sign that I am headed beyond the grave.) "Beyond the Sea" dives into Darin's childhood, marriage to Sandra Dee, enduring heart problems, his Hollywood career, and most notably his stellar singing profession. "Beyond The Sea" did include some components that should have been "Macked the Knife" in the editing room. The young Bobby Darin scenes were cumbersome and pleonastic; it almost drowned "Beyond The Sea". I guess Director Spacey got a bit spaced out! Also, Kate Bosworth's work as Sandra Dee did not convey enough charisma for me to say "look at Kate, she's Sandra Dee". It was close to being "deescipible". All in all, the actor Spacey daring efforts and triumph should be commended for his lifelong dream of developing a Darin bio. I guess he is a "Dream Lover" after all. **** Good
