'Being Flynn' Trailer Shows De Niro Can Still Play Serious Father, Is Weirdly Muscular

November 15, 2011


Adapted from Nick Flynn's 2004 memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Being Flynn stars Paul Dano as a social worker and would-be writer working in a homeless shelter. Robert De Niro co-stars as his father, a drunk who left Nick and mother Julianne Moore--and now he's coincidentally turned up at the aforementioned homeless shelter. Ut ohhhhh! How will De Niro handle this belligerent father-son relationship when it no longer make sense to shout "Focker!" as hilarious catharsis? How long will it take Julianne Moore to break down weeping? Will Paul Dano's lanky frame finally collapse from being so, so fragilely Paul Dano-esque? Investigate these pressing questions with this first trailer for Being Flynn:
