Plot: Working in a Boston homeless shelter, Nick Flynn re-encounters his father, a con man and self-proclaimed poet.
Quick comment: “Being Flynn” gathers one more time director Paul Weitz and actor Robert De Niro, after they have worked together in “Little Fockers” (2010). Once again, the result wasn't fruitful. From start to finish, this story has no surprises, just drags itself. Incapable to bring any emotions to the surface, we conclude that some “seasoning” was needed here - we just can’t blame DeNiro for that.
