Sean Penn goes goth for This Must Be the Place


Reviews have been lukewarm since its premiere at Cannes, but any film where Sean Penn gets to play an aging goth rock star still dressing the part & living off royalties in Dublin until he decides to track down the ex-Nazi refugee who humiliated is late, estranged father, in New York, is worth a watch.

Also, any film where Sean Penn & Frances McDormand get to share the screen is worth a watch.

Kind of hoping Sean Penn is not this monotonous throughout, though...
