Check out the first trailer for Paolo Sorrentino‘s upcoming drama This Must Be The Place.
Cheyenne, a wealthy former rock star (Sean 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.
Joining Sean Penn in the cast ensemble are Frances McDormand, Judd Hirsch, Eve Hewson, Kerry Condon, Harry Dean Stanton, Joyce Van Patten, David Byrne, Olwen Fouéré, Shea Whigham, Liron Levo, Heinz Lieven and Simon Delaney.
Director Paolo Sorrentino co-wrote the screenplay together with Umberto Contarello (The Missing Star Poster, ascia perdere, Johnny!,La passione).
“This Must Be The Place,” which is yet to have its official release date, is slated for 2011 release.
