New images have been released for the Cannes selections This Must Be the Place starring Sean Penn and Miss Bala. This Must Be the Place follows an aging rock star (Penn) who picks up his father’s mission to hunt down a Nazi war criminal. As for Miss Bala, no synopsis has been supplied but we’ll provide one as soon as we get it. In the meantime, the image from the film leads me to believe that Miss Bala is a harrowing drama about a woman struggling to fix her car’s windshield.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The 2011 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 11 – 22nd.
Here’s the official synopsis for This Must Be the Place:

The death of his father, with whom he wasn’t on speaking terms, brings him back to New York.

Cheyenne decides to pick up where his father left off, and starts a journey, at his own pace, across America.
