We Have a Pope

Rated NR 101 minutes 2011

You never hear about a pope stepping down. And who knows if someone has ever turned down the job? After all, the papal conclave is such a secret affair. But if either of those things did happen … well, it still probably wouldn’t resemble the events of We Have a Pope. The newly elected pontiff (a sublime Michel Piccoli) has a different kind of epiphany and realizes that his life’s work in the church is not his life’s passion. Faced with years behind the bulletproof glass of the Popemobile, he runs. There’s a period of time when Vatican officials don’t even know where he is. It’s a good character study, and Piccoli will be quite a find for American crowds, but We Have a Pope doesn’t connect enough dots to make it all worthwhile
