Being Flynn (2012)

“Being Flynn” is a 2012 American drama film directed by Paul Weitz and based on the memoir “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” by Nick Flynn. The movie stars Robert De Niro, Paul Dano, and Julianne Moore in lead roles.

The story follows Nick Flynn (Paul Dano), a young writer who works at a homeless shelter in Boston. Nick’s father, Jonathan Flynn (Robert De Niro), is an eccentric and self-centered man who abandoned Nick and his mother when he was a child. Jonathan resurfaces in Nick’s life after many years, seeking a place to stay after getting evicted from his apartment.

As Nick tries to reconnect with his estranged father, he also grapples with his own issues of addiction and self-doubt. Meanwhile, Jonathan, who considers himself a great writer, tries to regain control of his life and rebuild his relationship with his son.

The film received mixed reviews from critics, with praise given to the performances of De Niro and Dano. However, some critics found the film to be uneven and lacking in emotional depth. Despite the mixed reception, “Being Flynn” was noted for its exploration of themes such as family, addiction, and redemption.
