'This Must Be the Place' starring Sean Penn and Modern Goth Style AW12! Xx

This Must Be the Place Directed by Paolo Sorrentino, is the story of
Cheyenne (Sean Penn) a bored, retired rock star setting out
from his home in Dublin to 
find the man responsible for his father's humiliation, 
an ex-Nazi war criminal who is a refugee in the U.S.

The dvd and blu ray launched on Monday Aug 13,
and we went to watch a 

screening of the art house 
and highly styled Cannes Directors cut
at the Little White Lies head office by Old Street N1

We loved This Must Be the Place
the cast, the filming, and the pace -
it takes us back to the Films by Wim Wenders and David Lynch
such as Paris, Texas and Wild at Heart.

It also stars Frances McDormand, Eve Hewson, 

Harry Dean Stanton, Judd Hirsch and
David Byrne who Composed the Score, 
and plays himself in the film.

Harry Dean Stanton's Scene is pivotal, as he 
explains to Cheyenne that
he is the man who had the idea to put 
wheels on suitcases and patented it. 
A simple idea, but one that makes life so much easier 
- and very apt since Cheyenne has been wheeling a suitcase
around all the movie as if trying to find the answer.
Harry's character tells Cheyenne
 'I am happy because I don't have any answers'.

Paolo Sorrentino says he was inspired by David
Lynch's The Straight Story
which was described by the New York Times as This must Be the Place
can be as an 'Eloquently simple and Deeply Emotional Story'.
Both Films are Road Movies across America
- Portraits of America.
Stories also about an Emotional Journey.

Take a look at a trailer of that here:

The Character of Cheyenne is based on Robert Smith
of the Cure who in true Goth Style always, 
religiously wore guy liner and red lipstick
- still does! Xx

Check out the Goth Looks in this season and put together your own
Modern Look.
Make sure you layer up in dark shades of
 leather, satin, velvet, chiffon, 
sequin and lace - 
the more complicated the look the better.
Add belts, buckles, boots, chains and gloves.
 Of course it is better to have black hair
with shades of purple and blue - 
think Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
and Eve Hewson in This Must Be the Place.
Take a look also at the fabulous hair at Prada. 
Don't forget your major jewellery -
as many rings as possible, vintage earrings,
crucifix chain necklaces 
(Check Karlie Kloss at Jean Paul Gaultier)
and leather and silver charm
bracelets - Thomas Sabo, Links of London
 and Butler and Wilson are great.
Makeup is an absolute must.
Smudged black eyeliner 
(or guy liner - commes Johnny Depp).
Dark Purple Eyeshadow is good too,
or you could try the look from Prabul Gurung
with blue and turquoise.
Make your eyebrows bold and dark - even jewelled
like Peter Philips' at Chanel AW12.
Lipstick can be either 
in red a la Robert Smith, or 
Sparkle Style's favourite shade
right now - Dolce and Gabbana's 
Passion Duo Lipstick in Royal. 
The nail varnish in the same colour is great too.

Check Nina Ricci AW 12 for our favourite
Goth looks and the lipstick which is Red with
dark plum in the middle bottom lip for severe
and definite contrast.
Oh yes and ... no smiles please -
This look is Serious! Xx
