Paolo Sorrentino’s feature film directing debut came in 2001 with One Man Up, winner of the Nastro D’Argento for best young director. He achieved international recognition in 2004 for his stylish thriller, The Consequences of Love, nominated for the Palme D’Or at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. Sorrentino’s most recent film is Il Divo (Prix du Jury at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival). This Must Be the Place, the story of a wealthy middle-aged rock star, will mark Sorrentino’s English-language feature debut and stars two-time academy award winner Sean Penn. It will be released in 2011. Everybody’s Right, nominated for Italy’s most prestigious literary award, The Strega, is Sorrentino’s first novel.
