First U.S. Trailer for THIS MUST BE THE PLACE with Sean Penn

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

this-must-be-the-placeIn This Must Be the Place Sean Penn stars as an aging-rocker who still dresses goth and lives in Dublin off his royalties.  He finally has something to do after the death of his father, he becomes obsessed with pursuing the Nazi criminal who tormented his father in a concentration camp.

There’s also a Talking Heads cameo, so there’s that.  There are some laughs here so don’t expect a full on drama, but I do look forward to seeing Penn’s performance, when doesn’t he own his role?

The film also stars Frances McDormand and Judd Hirsch. This Must Be the Place opens on October 14th.

this_must_be_the_placeSean Penn has lost himself in yet another role, this time around he’s a wealthy former rock star, now bored and jaded in his retirement he embarks on a quest to find his father’s persecutor, an ex-Nazi war criminal now hiding out in the U.S.  I definitely would not have guessed that from the poster.

Here is the theatrical trailer for Paolo Sorrentino‘s This Must Be The Place starring Sean Penn, Frances McDormand, Harry Dean Stanton and Judd Hirsch.

This Must Be The Place will open in France on August 2  with no US distribution set just yet.

Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think.  Too much mumbling from Sean Penn?  Glad to see Judd Hirsch as much as I am?
