With Fall Movie Preview Week winding to a close, we’d like to introduce you to one of the quirkier movies on our list: “This Must Be The Place.”
The Sean Penn film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011, but is only now getting a wide release thanks to The Weinstein Company. And, yes, that is Penn that you see in the above exclusive image we have from the film. He plays an aging rocker named Cheyenne who, after his estranged father passes away, goes on a journey to fulfill his dad’s lifelong dream: to find the Nazi who tormented him during the Holocaust. As you can likely expect, this is a side of Penn that we’ve never seen before.
Also new is the theatrical trailer for “This Must Be The Place,” which gives you a better idea of how Penn works in such a different role. His soft-spoken, big-haired Cheyenne is definitely a new character for him, but it sounds like Penn excels at the challenge based on the buzz we’ve heard about this movie.
From the looks of things, many strange events occur along Cheyenne’s journey. He summarizes the premise of the flick best in the trailer when he says, “A lot of unusual things have been happening to me lately.”
“This Must Be The Place” will arrive in theaters on November 2. In addition to Penn, the film stars Frances McDormand, Henry Dean Stanton and Judd Hirsch.
