To celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release of Paolo Sorrentino’s much-anticipated English language debut This Must Be the Place (2011) on 13 August, which stars Academy Award winner Sean Penn, we have kindly been provided with THREE Blu-ray copies of the film and a poster to give away to our valued readers. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

This Must Be the Place is a comic, charmingly oddball road movie. Starring two time Academy Award winner Penn as Cheyenne, a middle-aged wealthy former Goth rock star now bored and jaded in his retirement, living in Dublin off his royalties with his wife Jane (Frances McDormand).

Learning his father is close to death, he travels to New York in the hope of being reconciled with him during his final hours, only to arrive too late. Having been estranged for over 30 years, it is only now in death that he learns the true extent of his father’s humiliation in Auschwitz at the hands of former SS Officer Aloise Muller – an event he was determined to avenge. With the help of Nazihunter Mordecai Midler (Judd Hirsch) Cheyenne decides to pick up where his father left off, and embarks on a life-altering journey, at his own pace, into the heartland of America.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE Blu-ray copies of Sorrentino’s This Must Be the Place, as well as the film’s poster, just answer the following simple question:
