Biography
He was born in Naples in 1970. His first full-length feature, One Man Up, was selected at the 2001 Venice Film Festival, achieved three nominations for the David di Donatello Awards (the Italian Academy Awards) and won the Nastro d’Argento (the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists Awards) for Best First Time Director. In 2004, he directed The Consequences of Love, selected in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and acclaimed by both Italian and international critics. The film won many important Italian awards, including five David di Donatello awards: for Best Film, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Cinematography. Three years later, his third film, The Family Friend, was also selected in Competition at Cannes. In 2008, another collaboration with Toni Servillo, Il Divo, became his third film to be selected in Competition at Cannes, winning the Jury Prize. The film was nominated for Best Make-Up at the Academy Awards and won seven David di Donatello, five Ciak d’Oro and five Nastri d’Argento awards. In 2010, he published his first novel, Hanno tutti ragione, which was warmly received by both critics and public and was short-listed for the Premio Strega, the most prestigious Italian literature award. This Must Be The Place, Sorrentino’s first English language feature, marks his fourth film in Competition at Cannes.

This Must Be the Place / Paolo Sorrentino

Cheyenne is a former rock star. At 50 he still dresses Goth style and lives in Dublin off his royalties. The death of his father, with whom he wasn’t on speaking terms, brings him back to New York. He discovers his father had an obsession: to seek revenge for a humiliation he had suffered. Cheyenne decides to pick up where his father left off, and starts a journey, at his own pace, across America.
