Take Three: Nick Flynn’s Triptych

The 2012 film Being Flynn, closely adapted from Nick Flynn’s stunning memoir, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, starred Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore and Paul Dano. As Flynn witnessed them enact his mother’s suicide and its aftermath, he began to heal from decades of suffering. My review essay of the film and Flynn’s third memoir, The Enactments, appeared in Creative Nonfiction #64, “Adaptation,” Summer 2017.
