This film was last shown on 10 May 2012

Cheyenne is a former rock star who is still rocking the Goth look. Now 50, he relives the days of superstardom with avid young fan and best friend Mary (Eve Hewson). Living off his royalties he rattles around his grand Dublin mansion until the death of his estranged father calls him to New York.

Reunited with his family Cheyenne discovers a secret that will send him across America.

On a journey through the Midwest, full of surprises and surreal encounters, from New York socialites to ethical gun-shop owners to a reunion with old friend David Byrne of Talking Heads, Cheyenne is on the road trip of his life.

"Director Paolo Sorrentino is justifiably considered an emerging master of modern cinema"

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"It’s always a curious and imaginative film. Penn is fun to watch and Sorrentino is a bold storyteller, unafraid of diversions in story and tone."
