About the Film

Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, Paul Dano and Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore give powerhouse performances in this compelling exploration of the unbreakable yet fragile bonds between parent and child, written and directed by Paul Weitz (About a Boy). Nick Flynn (Dano) is a young writer seeking to define himself. His father Jonathan (De Niro), however, scrapes through life on his own terms and has not seen his son in 18 years. Taking a job at a homeless shelter, Nick finds purpose in his own life and work until one night Jonathan arrives seeking a bed. To give the two of them a shot at a real future, Nick wrestles with the notion of reaching out to his dad in this “undeniably powerful” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) adaptation of Nick Flynn’s award-winning memoir Another Bull$%!* Night in Suck City.

Customer Reviews

Great film!

Well worth a watch.

Not sure

Robert De Niro is superb as always. That is a given. He is a once in a lifetime actor. He is very believable as the character that he plays on screen, and it is clear that he has completely delved into the role of the homeless man, roaming the streets in search if life. I jut found it a very hard film to watch. Not in a tear jerking way, but a painfully, depressing for-no-reason type of way. Stick with it until the end though. It becomes slightly uplifting, but not much.

I rented it….

...and as the credits started rolling, I bought it.
