(2012) dir Paul Weitz w/Paul Dano, Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore [102 min]
Adapted from Nick Flynn’s 2004 memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, BEING FLYNN explores bonds both unbreakable and fragile between parent and child. Nick (Dano) is a young writer seeking to define himself. He misses his late mother, Jody (Moore), and her loving nature. But his father, Jonathan (De Niro), is not even a memory, as Nick has not seen the man in 18 years. Suddenly, Jonathan impulsively reaches out to Nick and the two come face-to-face. BEING FLYNN is evocatively told, ruefully funny, and moving in its depiction of the ties that bind. Official Site | Focus Features
