Ten-episode limited series The Young Pope tells the story of the beginning of Pius XIII’s pontificate. Born Lenny Belardo, he is shrewd and naïve, ironic and pedantic, primeval and cutting-edge, doubting and resolute, melancholy and ruthless.
The first American pope in history, Pius XIII tries to cross the endless river of human solitude to find a God he can give to mankind. And to himself.
Jude Law stars in the title role; Diane Keaton stars as Sister Mary, a nun from the U.S. now living in Vatican City.
A joint production of Sky, HBO and Canal +; Paolo Sorrentino directs. Debuts Jan. 15.
