About This Must Be The Place
A once legendary rock star named Cheyenne (Sean Penn) now lives in an apathetic haze on his massive estate in Dublin. Cheyenne shuffles round his sleepy town looking like a tranquillised Robert Smith, occasionally voicing his puzzlement at life in a creepy, babyish tone. When he hears that his father is dying in New York, his fear of flying means he takes a longer trip by boat. Bidding goodbye to his more practical wife (Frances McDormand), he goes to visit the man he hasn't seen in 30 years. Unfortunately, he's too late. Upon discovering that his father endured many humiliations and hardships in a concentration camp during WWII, Cheyenne decides to hunt down the Nazi officer who tormented him most. His journey through America forces him to re-engage with the world he's shied away from all these years.
