For as much as Robert De Niro has taken bad films over the years, when he opts to do drama the guy still has it. Need proof? Being Flynn looks to have the actor in rare form.
Plot Summary: Adapted from Nick Flynn’s 2004 memoir “Another Bulls-t Night in Suck City,” the new dramatic feature from Academy Award-nominated writer/director Paul Weitz tells the story of a young writer, Nick (portrayed by Paul Dano), who takes a job at a homeless shelter – where one night he discovers his long-absent father Jonathan (two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) seeking a bed. Julianne Moore portrays the writer’s mother Jody; and Olivia Thirlby portrays Denise, a worker at the shelter.
