GOOD POPE, THE
An epic story of one man's dedication, devotion and sacrifice, The Good Pope is as much a tribute to the man as a discovery of a modern hero.
Known for his profound spirituality and destined for greatness, Angelo Roncalli (Bob Hoskins, The Long Good Friday) studied theology in Bergamo and began an extraordinary journey that would bring him great honour and worldwide respect.
During his years of studies he garnered much attention, spreading his compassion across the people and befriended Mattia (Carlo Cecchi, Stealing Beauty) and Nicola (Francesco Carnelutti, The Da Vinci Code) before being ordained in Rome in 1904.
Through a lifetime of good work and influence as a leader, a builder and representative of the Church, Roncalli's destiny would be secured after the passing of Pope Pius XII - to hear the gentle words of Jesus and lead the Church into new and challenging times as Pope John XXIII.
