This Must Be The Place - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
DIRECTOR Paolo Sorrentino’s much-anticipated English language debut is a comic, charmingly oddball road movie.
Starring two time Academy Award winner Sean Penn as Cheyenne, a middle-aged wealthy former Goth rock star now bored and jaded in his retirement, living in Dublin off his royalties with his wife Jane (Frances McDormand).
Learning his father is close to death, he travels to New York in the hope of being reconciled with him during his final hours, only to arrive too late.
Having been estranged for over 30 years, it is only now in death that he learns the true extent of his father’s humiliation in Auschwitz at the hands of former SS Officer Aloise Muller – an event he was determined to avenge.
With the help of Nazihunter Mordecai Midler (Judd Hirsch) Cheyenne decides to pick up where his father left off, and embarks on a life-altering journey, at his own pace, into the heartland of America.
As his quest unfolds, and reawakened by the people he encounters, Cheyenne must finally decide if it’s redemption he seeks or revenge.
This Must Be The Place boasts a fantastic soundtrack created by David Byrne and Will Oldham.
The Blu-ray and DVD release of the film boasts extras including interviews with cast and crew (Paolo Sorrentino; Eve Hewson; David Byrne; Kerry Condon; Stefania Cella; Judd Hirsch), the UK Theatrical Trailer and two versions of the Feature – the original Cannes version and Sundance edit (available on Blu-ray only).
