It’s been decided that a father-son relationship drama starring Paul Dano and Robert De Niro will sell more tickets if it’s called Being Flynn rather than Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, the title of the 2004 memoir that the film is based on. Nick Flynn‘s book is about a reunion with his egoistic alcoholic dad in Boston in the late ’80s. The title refers to his father’s description of homeless living in Beantown.

Being Flynn (Focus, 3.2) was directed, written and co-produced by Paul Weitz (About A Boy). It costars Olivia Thirlby, Lili Taylor, Wes Studi and Julianne Moore.
