I am always interested in stories about writers, then you add Robert De Niro and you've got me hooked. Then I read this was based on actual events by a writer and his memoir. The title of the book 'Another Bullshit Night in Suck City' by Nick Flynn. Another intriguing piece of the puzzle. With a little more research complete, I discover Paul Weitz directed this film. He also directed About A Boy, which I loved. No reviews in yet, but I am putting this on my list to see - just wish I knew when it was scheduled to be released.
