This Must Be the Place

At 50 years of age, former rock star Cheyenne (Sean Penn) still dresses the part and lives in Ireland off the royalties and dividends from smart investments. The death of his estranged father brings Cheyenne back to New York, where he discovers the old man had one obsession: to hunt down a Nazi war criminal (Heinz Lieven) ]. Cheyenne decides to pick up the quest where his late father left off, and sets out at his own pace on a journey across America.

For about 30 minutes, “This Must Be the Place” gets by on the specificity of Sean Penn’s character work, the warmth of Frances McDormand and the loopy nature of the setup. Penn plays a former rock star from the ’80s, who still wears bright red lipstick and dyed Goth hair — the look seems lifted directly from Robert Smith of the Cure — and who lives in a huge house in Dublin with his wife (McDormand) of many years.
