Kevin Spacey loves Blighty. Despite his concerns over knife related crime, the artistic director at the Old Vic Theatre in London has vowed to maintain his home in the UK.

“I love living in London,” says the New Jersey-born Kevin. “I can say with all sincerity that London is my home. I will never renounce being American but there is a part of me that is British now. I may go for dual citizenship – who knows?”

Hope he’s got a good financial adviser, and someone infinitely more competent than those cretins depicted in his film “Margin Call” (2011). It’s required viewing for anyone interested in the 2007-08 Wall Street financial crisis. Check it out.

OK, so he’s too old for the part – especially when Darin broke through with his teen wave hits – so squint a little and let Spacey’s living, breathing involvement in the role shine through. It’s a powerhouse performance.

As Darin soars with an album of big band standards (including Mack The Knife) and even bags an Oscar nomination, he nonetheless remains unsatisfied and when old health problems resurface, he fears that he’ll never achieve true fulfillment. Recounting his own life story on film , Spacey – as the mature Darin – is the interested bystander as his early days are recounted; “I knew if I made ten, I could make fifteen,” he recalls in one of several conversations with the kid playing him in his formative years.

Spacey hits a professional high note as Darin, singing up a storm and capturing the tragedy of boundless ambition, and although his visible creakiness renders intimate scenes with the bouncy Kate Bosworth (Sandra Dee) slightly cringe-worthy, there’s still much to enjoy in this mix of fantasy and reality.

Non devotees will permit the narrative to flow through them but aficionados – like me – might well take issue with some of the movie’s historical distortions. Taken as fact, we might come away believing Bobby and Sandra Dee stayed together until the end, his undying love for her withstanding their marital feuds and her alcoholism. In actuality, he divorced her in 1967, six years before his death, claiming he woke up one morning and didn’t love her anymore. Factual inaccuracies are matched all the way by glaring omissions, as Dee’s anorexia and depression are overlooked.

Drifting occasionally off course, ‘Beyond The Sea’ still holds its own as a buoyant tribute to a versatile talent, and given its obvious flaws that’s saying something……………………..

The following is an extensive interview with Spacey about his pet project.
