I have a soft spot for movies that tell a story about a writer or writers. So I was especially thrilled when I saw this trailer and did some research – so excited now. Being Flynn is actually a movie based on a memoir written by Nick Flynn “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” – this would make an excellent movie title but they changed it, I wonder why. Robert De Niro plays the father figure, Julianne Moore the mother and Paul Dano represents Flynn himself. It seems like a serious tale of boy meets father but it gives an impression of sarcasm as well. One thing is sure, I’ll be watching this cause I always find myself somehow relating to the writer characters – Being Flynn premiers next year but I couldn’t find any specific dates.
PS: If somebody wants desperately to give me something for Christmas, the book featured in this post as a “movie poster” would be nice. It is available in Estonia, I already checked, and it will fit into my book-to-movie collection just perfectly.
