Paolo Sorrentino, the rightfully celebrated writer/ director is the man behind the brand new HBO / Sky series The Young Pope. Starring Jude Law, Diane Keaton and Silvio Orlando, Law is Lenny Belardo, aka Pius XIII and history’s very first American Pope…
My levels of excitement about this show were first high because the trailer looks fantastic, great music and editing. But the joy reached new levels when I learned of Sorrentino’s involvement. After all, he did write and direct Youth (2015), one of the most visually stunning movies I’ve seen in a while. There’s also the The Great Beauty (2013), 2014’S Best Foreign Language Film Oscar winner.
I say bring on the stunning cinematography and storytelling. I can’t wait to find out what really drives Pius XIII – because based on this beautiful trailer, it’s not just love and holy duty.
The Young Pope Release Dates: October 21st, 2016 (GER); 2016 (US)…
Happy Film Loving 🙂
