Remember those pictures of Sean Penn dressed like a girl while filming a movie? I do, and it turns out that he was not playing a woman, but a goth man for This Must Be the Place. I don’t remember any goth guys, let alone former rock stars, sounding like this or having a hairdo like this, but this is what Sean Penn’s character looks like in the film. The film is essentially a journey for Sean Penn’s character as he travels the country trying to exact revenge on for his recently deceased father. The film also stars Frances McDormand, Judd Hirsch, Kerry Condon, Harry Dean Stanton, David Byrne. Paolo Sorrentino directed the film.
“Cheyenne (Sean Penn) is a former rock star. At 50, he still dresses “goth” and lives in Dublin off his royalties. The death of his father, with whom he wasn’t on speaking terms, brings him back to New York. He discovers his father had an obsession: to seek revenge for a humiliation he had suffered. Cheyenne decides to pick up where his father left off, and starts a journey, at his own pace, across America.”
This Must Be the Place is in theatres November 2, 2o12.
