Sean Penn’s latest, Flag Day, is a based-on-real-life tale of a US counterfeiter, and it sees the screen debut of his daughter, Dylan.

The Penn that we all know plays notorious US counterfeiter John Vogel, while Dylan plays his daughter, Jennifer.

Jennifer Vogel grew up to become a journalist, and the movie is based on her memoir, Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life.

Josh Brolin, Norbert Leo Butz, Dale Dickey, Eddie Marsan, Bailey Noble and Katheryn Winnick also star, while the movie features original songs by the likes of Cat Power, Glen Hansard and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.

Flag Day is set for a limited overseas release in August. We await local screening details.
