New Poster For ‘This Must Be The Place’ Reminds Us Why We Still Want To See This Movie

New Poster For 'This Must Be The Place' Reminds Us Why We Still Want To See This Movie

Granted, the reviews out of Cannes for “This Must Be The Place” were not good — our man in the field James Rocchi called it “rambling and ragged” — but other reviews were far less kind and overall word was that it was a disappointment if not a complete misfire. But regardless, it does have Sean Penn channeling Robert Smith and we’ll watch that any day of week.

Directed by Paolo Sorrentino (”Il Divo”), the film centers on Penn’s character, an aging rock star, who becomes obsessed in tracking down the Nazi criminal who tortured his father. Frances McDormand, Harry Dean Stanton, Kerry Condon, Judd Hirsch and Bono’s daughter, Eve Hewson, all co-star, but judging from this French poster for the film, the main attraction is still Penn’s amazing mane of hair and ravaged, lipsticked face.

The film hasn’t yet been picked up for U.S. distribution, but if you live in France you can check it out on August 24th. Full poster below. [RecentMoviePosters]

This sounds like it would be a terrible film… “aging rock star who is determined to find the Nazi who tortured his father…”


If this is based on a true story- let’s just say, some decisions shouldn’t be made…

also, this website should get in the habit of proof reading their articles… effing Christ guys…

Frankly, this article is “not good”. The reviews have actually been quite polarizing and not overall bad as this article states. Hollywood Reporter, The Guardian, and Variety all gave this movie quite good reviews, in fact, so just because Indiewire gave it a terrible grade, it does not mean that that is the overall consensus; get over yourself.


Spiccoli grew up to be a goth rocker!

I still believe this can be something extraordinary good. Only 5 reviews at RT and nothing is definite.
