Sean Penn goes glam

Just what exactly was Sean Penn up to when he closed off parts of Dublin recently? From the look of the pictures below he was scaring the bejeezus out of the locals. Dressed in drag Penn was filming his part in Il Divo director Paolo Sorrentino’s new film This Must Be The Place.

Penn plays an ageing rock-star who is obsessed with finding a Nazi criminal who tortured his father in a concentration camp. Cheery stuff. Frances McDormand is also on-board playing Penn’s wife, with Bono’s daughter, Eve Hewson, playing a ‘gothic-punk music fan’ who befriends Penn’s character.

A strange sounding film indeed, and kind of disturbing from these pictures. It will be interesting to see what comes of it. The movie is due out sometime next year.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
