Robert De Niro has been on auto-pilot for the last few years, recently appearing in Little Fockers, Machete, Limitless, Killer Elite and capping it all off with New Year’s Eve next month. In a bit of a career resurgence he actually has a few promising projects coming up, with David O. Russell‘s The Silver Linings Playbook, Rodrigo Cortes‘ Red Lights and Sean Penn‘s The Comedian. Another one that may fall into either category is Paul Weitz‘s Being Flynn.

Adapted from Nick Flynn’s 2004 memoir Another Bulls-t Night in Suck City, the new dramatic feature from Academy Award-nominated writer/director Paul Weitz tells the story of a young writer, Nick (portrayed by Paul Dano), who takes a job at a homeless shelter – where one night he discovers his long-absent father Jonathan (two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) seeking a bed.

Grand Piano is a film that is so masterfully done that it seems silly one would ever have doubts that the story could be pulled off. Much of that has to do with the work of the blossoming director Eugenio Mira, who actually created animatics of the film to get everyone on the same page. Starring Elijah Wood as [...]
