Julianne Moore Joins The Cast Of Another Night With Paul Dano And Robert De Niro
For me, one of the biggest mysteries of this past year's Oscars was that Annette Bening was nominated for her part in The Kids Are All Right over Julianne Moore, who I felt put on the more important and better performance. Regardless, Moore has never been an actress that has needed tons of awards to keep her career going (her high talent level does that for her) and no she's landed yet another part.
Variety reports that Moore is set to play in Paul Weitz's Another Night alongside Robert De Niro, Paul Dano, and Olivia Thirlby. Based on the memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City by Nick Flynn, the film is about the relationship between an estranged father and son, played by De Niro and Dano, who interact while the son is working at a homeless shelter in Boston. Moore will play Dano's mother and will only be seen in flashback sequences.
Julianne Moore's involvement alone is enough to make me think that this may be the first great movie De Niro has done in years. Weitz doesn't have the greatest track record - he was responsible for Little Fockers - but with this cast and the Boston setting, it sounds like it will be hard to argue against.
