“This Must Be the Place,” from renowned Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, brings Sean Penn, Frances McDormand and Judd Hirsh together to entertain in a charming story.

The film brings a lot of elements together, for sure; a goth rocker and his firefighter wife start a journey to finish the rocker’s father’s own path to revenge:
“When legendary Goth rocker Cheyenne (Two-time Academy Award® winner Sean Penn), long-retired in Dublin with his firefighter wife, Jane (Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand), learns his estranged father is dying, the childlike recluse travels to New York to seek reconciliation – only to arrive too late. Upon discovering his father’s unfulfilled quest for revenge against an ex-Nazi war criminal taking refuge in America, Cheyenne embarks upon his own journey of reawakening in this engaging and unpredictable road adventure from internationally acclaimed director Paolo Sorrentino.”
