Being Flynn Giveaway
The movie, Being Flynn, is based upon Nick Flynn's 2004 memoir entitled Another Bulls-t Night in Suck City, the story of Nick's non-exsistant relationship with his father, Jonathan - a man he has not seen for 18 years. Then his father suddenly reappears in Nick's world.
What will make this one especially interesting to avid readers like you guys is, I think, that both of the Flynn's are writers. The movie's trailer gives a good feel for the movie's content and quality:
This looks like one of those ever-rarer literary films, something for grownups - the kind of thing that might actually get me back inside an actual movie theater despite my aversion to the noise and rudeness that represents the typical behavior of today's movie audience. De Niro is, of course, a draw in himself and, although I am less familiar with Paul Dano's work, what I see of it in this trailer is impressive.
So, for a chance to win a paperback copy of the movie-tie-in novel and $25 worth of Fandango bucks, reply to this post with your choice of a number between 1 and 30. I'll dust off my handy dandy random number generator to choose a winner some time in the next 10 days, depending on how many entries I get.
