Watch: First Trailer for Sean Penn's New Indie 'This Must Be The Place'
"Actually, Mick Jagger sang with me." Time to get a little taste of Sean Penn in drag. Our friends at Twitch have uncovered the first trailer for an indie film called This Must Be The Place, directed by an Italian filmmaker starring Sean Penn as a "bored, retired rock star" who hunts the US to find the ex-Nazi war criminal who killed his father and "track down and confront his father's nemesis." Despite premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this summer, it received mostly mixed-to-negative reviews, so I'm not sure I'm all that interested in it, even though this trailer does seem intriguing. At least it's well-made, I may yet check it out.

A retired rock star sets out to find his father's executioner, an ex-Nazi war criminal hiding out in the U.S.
This Must Be The Place is written and directed by Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino, making his English language debut after directing One Man Up, The Consequences of Love, The Family Friend and Il Divo previously. The screenplay was co-written by Sorrentino and Umberto Contarello (The Missing Star, A Question of the Heart, The Passion). This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Trinity Entertainment will be bringing This Must Be The Place to theaters, but hasn't set an official release date yet.
