BEYOND THE SEA. Opened Wednesday in the North Park Art Cinema. Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth, John Goodman, Bob Hoskins and Brenda Blethyn in Spacey's musical biography of pop icon Bobby Darin. "There's real personal obsession in this, a lifelong desire to play Bobby Darin so excessive and so deep that you've got to tip your hat to it. But once you get into the film proper, it's one shabby showbiz biopic convention after another. Spacey is in this for the production numbers, the chance to hoof and throw his arms around in Vegas evening clothes." 121 minutes. (Rated PG-13 for some strong language and a scene of sensuality.) ** 1/2 (Jeff Simon)
