Having opened to mixed response in Cannes, Paolo Sorrentino's This Must Be The Place
will almost certainly be remembered mostly as 'that movie where Sean Penn dresses up like Robert Smith from The Cure'. Penn's transformation into an aging Goth has been the drawing card on this one from day one and while we've had clips pop up to showcase the transformation before we now have the first full trailer for the film, freshly released in the lead up to its French theatrical release.
Cheyenne, a wealthy former rock star (Penn), now bored and jaded in his
retirement embarks on a quest to find his father's persecutor, an
ex-Nazi war criminal now hiding out in the U.S. 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 is determined to avenge.
So begins a life-altering journey across the heartland of America to
track down and confront his father's nemesis.
Oh, right. He's not just a Goth, he's a Nazi-hunting Goth. Very, very odd. Check the trailer below.
