”This must be the place”, “Questo deve essere il posto” directed by Paolo Sorrentino will be in competition at this years Cannes Film Festival, running from the 11th May until the 22 of May 2011, it is not due for release in Italy before October 2011 grrr grrrr.
Director : Paolo Sorrentino’s fame goes before him, he is recognised worldwide, many of his films have been distributed independently abroad as well as appearing at many of the biggest International Film Festivals. His greatest success was without doubt Il Divo 2008 however L’amico di familia, The Family Friend 2006 – Le conseguenze dell’amore, The Consequences of Love 2001 – and L’uomo in piu, One Man Up 2001 also did very well on the International market. I understand that Sean Penn met up with Paolo Sorrentino during the Cannes Film Festival in 2008, where he impressed the director so much that he returned to Italy and asked David Bryne to sort out a screenplay and there you have it a film was born.
Cast : Sean Penn, Eve Hewson. Frances MaDormand, Judd Hirsch, Heinz Lieven, Kerry Conden, Olwen Fouere, Simon Delaney, Hoyce Van Pattern, Liron Levo
