‘This Must Be The Place’ Trailer: Sean Penn Puts on Lipstick to Hunt Down a Nazi

This Must Be the Place

Like a bizarre rumor, This Must Be The Place has been floating around out there for a while. It saw audiences at Cannes 2011 (where Simon fell in love with it) and then traveled to Sundance, so even though its journey hasn’t been as long as some festival flicks out there, it’s nice to see it finally see the darkened theater light of day.

From director Paolo Sorrentino, the film stars Sean Penn as a former rock star who is spurred by his father’s death to learn more about the man and to track down the Nazi death camp guard who tormented him. He does this all while looking like Robert Smith from The Cure and talking as if years of drug use made him permanently dehydrated.

From the trailer, it looks to be a serious subject handled with dry absurdity. Check it out for yourself:

This Must Be The Place hits theaters on November 2nd.
