The two were there to chat about the thriller, which they both star in.

Despite heavy anticipation for their new film, it was poorly received by critics when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, though more will weigh in before its official release in the US on August 20. 

In addition to directing the film, Sean stars as John Vogel a magnetizing figure who charms his daughter Jennifer (played as an adult by Dylan).

However, what starts as a family drama takes a turn into thriller territory after it’s revealed that John is one of the most notorious counterfeiters in US history.

As an adult, Jennifer has to struggle to find her own path in life while moving past the crimes of her father.

The father–daughter due were on hand at the Cannes Film Festival last month, where Flag Day premiered in competition.

Ben Kenigsberg of RogerEbert.com called the film ‘heavy-handed,’ while David Rooney wrote for The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Flag Day was ‘neither terribly memorable nor moving.’

Mark Asch wrote for the British film magazine Little White Lies that ‘everyone in this movie is doing career-worst work.’

Seemingly missing from the advance screening was Penn’s new wife Leila George, 29.

The Australian–American actress is only a few months younger than Dylan and just two years older than Sean’s son Hopper Penn, 27.

The actor and director confirmed that he had married George last summer via a civil ceremony over zoom. 

He showed off his gold wedding band during a visit to Late Night with Seth Meyers, where he divulged: ‘We did a COVID wedding. By that, I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house with my two children and her brother, and we did it that way.’ 

The Milk actor shares both children with ex-wife, House of Cards star Robin Wright.

Prior to their union he was married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989.
