BEING FLYNN with Author Nick Flynn in Person!
January 9, 2013
Join us for Q+A with author Nick Flynn following film screening!
Adapted from Nick Flynn’s 2004 memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, BEING FLYNN explores bonds both unbreakable and fragile between parent and child. Nick (Dano) is a young writer seeking to define himself. He misses his late mother, Jody (Moore), and her loving nature. But his father, Jonathan (De Niro), is not even a memory, as Nick has not seen the man in 18 years. Suddenly, Jonathan impulsively reaches out to Nick and the two come face-to-face. BEING FLYNN is evocatively told, ruefully funny, and moving in its depiction of the ties that bind.
