This must be the place

Director: Paolo Sorrentino

Starring: Sean Penn, Kerry Condon, Harry Dean Stanton

Cheyenne (Sean Penn) was once a Goth rock star with a frail voice and slow walk. He is in decline after his music drove a few young people to suicide and lives with his long-suffering wife (Frances McDormand) in guilty retirement in an elaborate Dublin mansion. At his father’s funeral he finds out his dad, a Holocaust survivor, was on the hunt for a Nazi war criminal and decides to pick up on the trail. The news gives the rocker new meaning and the unlikely sleuth goes undercover to out the Nazi. What follows is a series of bazaar encounters as Cheyenne seeks the truth. Shot in Dublin and North America this is a bewilderly movie destined for cult status. Wait till it comes to an art house cinema near you and dress up like Cheyenne and you might even enjoy it.
