    This Must Be the Place
    Fifty-year-old retired goth rocker Cheyenne (Sean Penn) travels from London to New York to visit his dying father, and then journeys across the United States on a mission to seek revenge against the elusive ex-Nazi war criminal who persecuted his dad in Auschwitz. Despondent after two of his young fans commit suicide, Cheyenne retreats to his Dublin mansion and begins living off of his royalties alongside his down-to-earth wife Jane (Frances McDormand). Later, he receives word that his father is dying in New York City. Although they haven't spoken in 30 years, he boards the first available flight to bid his dad farewell. Unfortunately, Cheyenne arrives too late. Upon reconnecting with his cousin Richard (Liron Levo), however, the morose musician learns that his father, a Holocaust survivor, had been tracking Auschwitz guard Aloise Lange (Heinz Lieven) around America for decades. Filled with ennui yet determined not to let Lange escape unpunished, Cheyenne vows to pick up the mission his father left uncompleted. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Original and entertaining

      I am not aware if this movie ever made it to theatrical release. I had seen a trailer for this movie about two years ago and routinely checked up on it to find out when it would arrive in theaters. I wanted to see this movie because the trailer piqued my interest. The look of Penn's character is modeled after Robert Smith of the Cure, but the role he plays has nothing to do with Robert Smith's life. This is an independent movie, so it moves along at a much slower pace than a large budget-large studio production. Even so, I thought this movie was entertaining and would recommend it to anyone looking for a movie that follows a different path than a lot of standard Hollywood fare.

      One of Sean Penn's Strangest

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This movie is quirky and also one of Sean Penn's most unusual and great acting performances. All are great in this movie. I love off the norm films and this is one of my favorites! I highly recommend it for the acting, the story and all its very funny scenes!

      A nice job of acting by Sean Penn

      I actually found this one kind of funny. Sean did a nice job and was believable in the character.
