France, Ireland, Italy | 2011 | Paolo Sorrentino
Sean Penn, Francis McDormand, and Judd Hirsch star in the American-set new movie by the Italian director of Il Divo. It’s an outlandish, seriocomic drama about a retired, Dublin-based rock star (Penn) who travels across the U.S. to find—and avenge—the elderly ex-Nazi who, decades before, persecuted the rocker’s late father in Auschwitz. With David Byrne, who also did the music. “Quirky, hilarious and moving, Sorrentino’s first English-lingo production is a road trip of stunning scope yet deep intimacy…Sean Penn [is] at his transformative best.” –Variety.
