While it's a drag that the title of the novel it's based off of -- "Another Bullshit Night In Suck City" -- couldn't stick for the big screen adaptation, things are looking good for "Being Flynn." The first trailer that dropped last fall was a pleasant surprise, promising a solid dramatic diversion this spring from the various tentpoles that will be hurled our way at the multiplex.

Paul Dano Being Flynn

While it's a drag that the title of the novel it's based off of -- "Another Bullshit Night In Suck City" -- couldn't stick for the big screen adaptation, things are looking good for "Being Flynn." The first trailer that dropped last fall was a pleasant surprise, promising a solid dramatic diversion this spring from the various tentpoles that will be hurled our way at the multiplex.

This afternoon Focus Features dropped a batch of new images from the film, to stoke that anticipation a little bit further. The story follows Nick, a young man in his twenties (Paul Dano) who works at various homeless shelters in Boston, and spots his estranged father (Robert De Niro) seeking a bed one night, leading him to face his past. Olivia Thirlby plays Denise, the love interest (with a terrible haircut, apparently) who helps Dano land the job, while Julianne Moore (what, no pictures?) plays Nick's mother, Jody. Lili Taylor and Dale Dickey round out the impressive cast. 

Paul Weitz ("About A Boy," "In Good Company") is at the helm and the movie opens on March 2nd.
