Can one life story have two authors?
“Being Flynn” is the new dramatic feature from Academy Award-nominated writer/director Paul Weitz (“About a Boy”). Adapted from Nick Flynn’s 2004 memoir “Another Bulls—t Night in Suck City,” the movie explores bonds both unbreakable and fragile between parent and child.
Nick Flynn (portrayed in the film by Paul Dano of “Little Miss Sunshine” and “There Will Be Blood”) is a young writer seeking to define himself. He misses his late mother, Jody (four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore), and her loving nature. But his father, Jonathan Flynn (two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro), is not even a memory, as Nick has not seen the man in 18 years.
Evocatively told, ruefully funny, and moving in its depiction of the ties that bind, Being Flynn tells a story that reveals universal truths.
