Sean Penn has always demanded public attention, whether he wished it or not. Long considered the finest American screen actor of his generation, he has never courted Hollywoods approval, or wasted a minute being anything but his own man.

His 2004 Oscar win as Best Actor for Clint Eastwoods Mystic River capped a remarkable eighteen months for Penn: once he made newspaper headlines with his fists, yet in December 2002 he returned to the front pages as a result of an extraordinary mission to Iraq made amid the countdown to Operation Shock and Awe. Already, Penns has been a most mercurial American life.

Passionate and fiercely committed, his early performances in films as disparate as Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Falcon and the Snowman marked him out for greatness- until a tumultuous marriage to Madonna turned his life into tabloid fodder, even landing him in jail.

But Penn was made of sterner stuff, and re-forged his life: as a husband and father, occasional hell-raiser, writer/director - and reluctant actor, capable still of breathtaking work (Carlitos Way, Dead Man Walking, Sweet and Lowdown, 21 Grams). In the process he also found his political voice, inspired by the examples of his father Leo - a decorated World War II veteran whose own acting career was unjustly curtailed in Hollywoods infamous blacklist era.

Sean Penn draws upon two hundred hours of exclusive interviews, both with the famously press-wary Penn and his closest friends, family and colleagues (including Jack Nicholson, Dennis Hopper, Woody Allen, Kevin Spacey, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Bono, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, Robin Wright Penn and many more).
