THIS MUST BE THE PLACE ( M)
Stars: Sean Penn, Frances McDormand
Director: Paulo Sorrentino
Available: Wednesday, on DVD and BD
Sean Penn channels a bizarre- o mix of Robert Smith of The Cure and alt rocker Ozzy Osbourne in this strange but involving tale about life and death. It follows a retired and bored- off- his- rocker rocker ( Penn) who travels from Ireland to America when he learns of his father’s imminent death. Arriving too late he takes up his father’s plight to find the Nazi war criminal that persecuted him during World War II. Like Penn’s lead character, this dramedy is a strange beast but it’s not without its oddball charms either.
Extras: ★★★ Half an hour of cast/ crew interviews.
