See Sean Penn as goth rocker in This Must Be The Place

I am in love … with this picture of Sean Penn. A new image and clip from Penn’s forthcoming film This Must Be the Place has appeared over at The Playlist, and has more than a few people scratching their heads.

In the Paolo Sorrentino directed film, Penn plays Cheyenne, a retired rock star who wants to find the Nazi war criminal who tortured his father. Yes, that does sounds pretty strange.

Cheyenne travels from Dublin to the United States hoping to reconcile with his dying father but only after his death does he learn the extent of his father’s torture while in Auschwitz. He journeys across America to track down Aloise Lange, the SS Officer responsible for his father’s treatment, who is hiding out.

If you weren’t intrigued by the picture of Penn check out the montage clip set to the song Every Single Moment In My Life is a Weary Wait by Italian band Nino Bruno e le 8 Tracce, who have worked with Italian director Sorrentino on a previous film.

I have to admit I am quite eager to see this film. It premieres in Cannes next month and also stars Frances McDormand, Judd Hirsch, Shea Whigham and Harry Dean Stanton.

Discuss: That hair.
