Film – “Being Flynn”

August 28, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


This Fall’s common read book, Being Flynn, by Nick Flynn has been made into a feature length film. The 2012 film follows the story of twenty-something Nick Flynn (Paul Dano), who hopes to be a writer. He has an absent father, Jonathan (Robert De Niro), who considers himself a great writer and who hasn’t seen Nick in years. The movie deals centrally with this strained relationship, but also with Nick’s remembrances of his childhood with his now-deceased mother, Jody (Julianne Moore), and interactions with friend/lover, Denise (Olivia Thirlby).

Nick Flynn will be speaking at SNC on Friday, September 5 as part of the Writers in the Woods series.
