Plot Summary

In This Must Be The Place, Sean Penn plays Cheyenne, a bored, retired, wealthy American goth rock star living in Dublin (and looking a lot like Robert Smith). He's a complex character, bumbling around town with friends and living in an enormous mansion with his down-to-earth wife of 35 years, Jane (Frances McDormand). When he learns of the death of his father - who he has been estranged from for over 30 years - he returns to America to embark on a road trip that will change him forever. His quest is driven by the revelation that his father was humiliated in Auschwitz at the hands of an SS officer, who may still be alive and living in America. Cheyenne's search takes him across the heartland of a country now foreign to him, encountering some great people as he is reawakened to the possibility of reconciliation and self-discovery. This is a rare film that is able to mix stunning originality and elegance with real humanity. Penn is riveting, beguiling and downright perplexing in a performance that reminds you why he is one of the greats. Featuring a terrific soundtrack with music and lyrics by David Byrne and Will Oldham, This Must Be The Place is a genuinely unique film full of warmth, humour, profundity and lots of eye-liner.

Customer Reviews


Quirky, hilarious and poignant . Best film to have come around for a while. Loved it !!!

Don't let the cover fool you - this is a very good movie.

Sean Penn shines in this. Really nice to see him playing something a little different.

The story is good, the acting is excellent.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good story.


When my boyfriend put this film on I didn't even know what it was, let alone have any idea what to expect. It is now up there with my favorite films of all time - it's a complete surprise. You have to see it!
