Directed by Paul Weitz | 2012

With Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, Olivia Thirlby, Paul Dano, Lili Taylor

To celebrate the publication of his latest memoir The Reenactments,  Nick Flynn joins audiences for a discussion of his work, a book signing, and a special screening of Being Flynn, a film based on his bestselling memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City.

Being Flynn is a powerful examination of family dysfunction, homelessness, and the pitfalls of literary ambition, set against a vividly recreated 1980s Boston. Mourning his mother’s (Moore) recent death, Flynn (Dano), a 20-something struggling writer, takes a job as a social worker at a homeless shelter. A chance encounter with his estranged father (DeNiro) forces the pair down a painful path of reconciliation, as Nick comes to understand how his father’s own dreams of being the next great American novelist led him to abandon his family.
