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. Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood) portrays Nick Flynn, 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, is not even a memory, as Nick has not seen the man in 18 years. Jonathan Flynn (two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) has long defined himself as a great writer, “a master storyteller.” Suddenly facing eviction from his apartment, Jonathan impulsively reaches out to Nick and the two come face-to-face.

They are two of Hollywood's favorite subjects: stories about writers and stories about daddy issues. Both subjects will be getting smashed together like PB&J in Being Flynn, a new drama starring Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, Paul Dano, and Olivia Thirlby. It is not, despite what you might think, based on the autobiography of tech mogul and occasional cyberspace tourist Kevin Flynn.
