Being Flynn: See it, read it, or both.

UPDATE: February 28, 2012
The movie Being Flynn  comes out in just four theatres this Friday! Two here in L.A., the Arc Light on Sunset (the former Cinerama Dome) and the Landmark on Pico plus two in New York, AMC's Lincoln Square 12 and the Landmark Sunshine Cinema 5 on Houston.
I seriously hope it gets out to a wider swathe of the country! The film is based on the book Another Bullshit Night In Suck City  but the book is now being re-released as Being Flynn.  Visit the Focus Films site to get on their list; hopefully you'll get notified when the movie will be playing in your town or a town near you!


Being Flynn film stars Paul Dano - who was spectacular in Little Miss Sunshine and There Will be Blood  - as a young writer seeking to define himself. He misses his late mother (Julianne Moore) and eventually comes face-to-face with his long-estranged father (Robert De Niro), a self-proclaimed master storyteller who is facing eviction from his apartment. The San Francisco Chroniclle called the book a "stunningly beautiful memoir"; Paul Weitz wrote and directed the film.  You might want to check out Nick Flynn's very informative AND groovy website here.  Tons of interviews, and pictures and a pretty cool layout.

  1. Being Flynn is based on Nick Flynn's memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, which was released in 2004. there is no reason to wait for the memoir's release under the new Being Flynn title, which is obviously being done to capitalize on the film. Buy the original. i imagine the studio forced the new name for the movie, and while i want Flynn to make as much money as possible, i really hate that the book was renamed as well. the original title is way better.

  2. Yes, I realized my error and have since read the book Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. In fact I posted about it here

    I agree Flynn's original title is better; still looking forward to seeing the film!
    Thanks for stopping by.
