Being Flynn

2012-06-26 13:22
What it's about:

Nick Flynn is shocked to have his eccentric and long-absent father, Jonathan, reach out to him unexpectedly.

Still feeling the loss of his mother in the midst of starting a new relationship with Denise, the last person Nick wants to see is his father.

But, you can't outrun fate, and, slowly, Nick comes to realise that he's been given the chance to make a real future not only for himself, but for his struggling father too.

What the critics thought:

"Writer-director Paul Weitz can't make the solipsistic central protagonists interesting, even though his best films (About a Boy, In Good Company) deal with surrogate father-son relationships."
- Alonso Duralde, The Wrap

"To summon up his most iconic role must represent Robert De Niro's faith in this film."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"A simple, tender father/son drama elevated by De Niro and Dano's stand out performances."
- Matt Patches,   

We're all works in progress.

Hands of Stone

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
