Synopsis

Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, Paul Dano ("There Will Be Blood") 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 adaptation of Nick Flynn's award-winning memoir "Another Bulls-t Night in Suck City."
