New Trailer for THIS MUST BE THE PLACE Starring Sean Penn

Here is a new trailer for This Must Be The Place starring Sean Penn doing his best impersonation of The Cure. This Australian edit of the trailer from Hopscotch films shows off some new footage for this unique film. The film was directed by Paolo Sorrentino, who directed such films as Il Divo and The Consequences of Love

Here is the description:

Sean Penn plays Cheyenne, a bored, retired, wealthy American goth rock star living in Dublin (and looking a lot like Robert Smith). He's a complex character, bumbling around town with friends and living in an enormous mansion with his down-to-earth wife of 35 years, Jane (Frances McDormand.) When he learns of the death of his father - who he has been estranged from for over 30 years - he returns to America to embark on a road trip that will change him forever. His quest is driven by the revelation that his father was humiliated in Auschwitz at the hands of an SS officer, who may still be alive and living in America. Cheyenne's search takes him across the heartland of a country now foreign to him, encountering some great people as he is reawakened to the possibility of reconciliation and self-discovery. This is a rare film that is able to mix stunning originality and elegance with real humanity. Penn is riveting, beguiling and downright perplexing in a performance that reminds you why he is one of the greats. Featuring a terrific soundtrack with music and lyrics by David Byrne and Will Oldham, This Must Be The Place is a genuinely unique film full of warmth, humour, profundity and lots of eye-liner.

This movie looks very slow and methodical in it’s story telling. I am not sure that I am even interested in seeing this, for sure not in theaters. Watch the new trailer below and share your thoughts:
