19th Jul 2012
Director Paolo Sorrentino's English language debut is a comic, charmingly oddball road movie with a sincere, emotional heart, smart dialogue and images of breath-taking, lingering beauty.

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE tells the story of Cheyenne (Sean Penn), a wealthy former rock star living who rattles around his Dublin mansion until the death of his estranged father calls him to New York.

Reunited with his family, he discovers a secret that sends him across America.  On a journey through the Midwest, full of surprises and surreal encounters, from New York socialites to ethnic gun-shop owners to a reunion with old friend David Byrne of Talking Heads, Cheyenne is on the road trip of his life.

The film which was backed by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) and filmed on location around Dublin and Wicklow boasts a host of stars alongside Penn including Frances McDormand (Fargo), Judd Hirsch (Taxi) and Irish talent Simon Delaney (Zonad, Happy Ever Afters), Olwen Fouere (Ballykissangel), Kerry Conlon (Rome) and newcomer Eve Hewson, daughter of U2 singer Bono.

THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is available on DVD on ON DEMAND from July 20th.
