For Nick Flynn, that game we all play--the who-would-play-you-in-the-movie-of-your-life game--has been resolved.THE REENACTMENTS  chronicles the surreal experience of being on set during the making of the film Being Flynn, from his best-selling memoir ANOTHER BULLSHIT NIGHT IN SUCK CITY, and watching the central events of his life reenacted: his father's long run of homelessness and his mother's suicide. Flynn tells the story of Robert De Niro's first meeting with his real father in Boston and of watching Julianne Moore attempt to throw herself into the sea. The result is a mesmerizingly sharp-edged and kaleidoscopic literary tour de force as well as a compelling argument about consciousness, representation, and grief.
