Italy – Nanni Moretti – 1 hr 45 min – w/subtitles
A cardinal unexpectedly finds himself elected as the next Pope in this dark comedy from Nanni Moretti. He panics when he’s presented in St. Peter’s Square, so the Vatican calls in a psychiatrist to help calm his nerves. We Have a Pope is a touching character study, exploring doubt, faith, weakness and resolve. This is rich material and Moretti plays it for both absurdity and pathos. Starring Michel Piccoli.
