This Must Be the Place, Sean Penn

Sean Penn is currently on location in Dublin filming his latest project, This Must Be The Place.

Shooting on the indie for Indigo Films began on August 16th and will continue for the next few weeks and the American actor was spotted wearing a long, messy wig and a bright red lipstick.

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. As his quest unfolds, Cheyenne is reawakened by the people he encounters and his journey is transformed into one of reconciliation and self discovery. As his date with destiny arrives and he tracks down Muller, Cheyenne must finally decide if it is redemption he seeks ….or revenge.

The movie is written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo) and co-stars Frances McDormand, Shea Whigham and Harry Dean Stanton. Bono’s (U2) daughter, actress Eve Hewson, is among the cast, playing a music fan who befriends Penn’s character.

This Must Be the Place is scheduled to be released sometime in 2011.

    —In 2011, for those out there who STILL haven’t heard
    our last 5 decades of ‘pop culture’ and ‘liberation’ were
    entirely scripted for eugenics culling by Stanford Research and the Tavistock Institute.

    Initially I was interested for the reason Sean Penn plays in the movie thinking he’ll never be in a cheap film after how great I Am Sam went, and so the story got me riding the patience boat for some time and kinda hypnotized me ’til the very end, the movie was slow in pace, very unplanned actually with all exposition of “supposed-to-be” important detail, all information shot right at the audience was never given importance, I guess modern prose suggest that we take it as a package~ now to wrap it up, it was done naturally, telling how people deal with the consequences of choices, we live like we’re dying or we die before we even live, this movie tells you that living is never too late, it taught me as well to establish a thick border-line between boredom and depression, this movie should tell you that principles stick to your bones until you are all rotten when you die, so better build principles that develop you and not stuck you immature and deprived of life, everything must change~ for the better.
