BOXSET of The Young Pope and The New Pope, both directed by Paolo Sorrentino. The Young Pope Lenny Belardo (Jude Law), aka Pius XIII, is the first American Pope in history. Young and charming, his election might seem the result of a simple and effective media strategy by the College of Cardinals. But, as we know, appearances can be deceptive. Especially in the place and among the people who have chosen the great mystery of God as the guiding light of their existence. That place is the Vatican and those people are the leaders of the Catholic Church. And the most mysterious and contradictory figure of all turns out to be Pius XIII himself. Shrewd and naïve, old-fashioned and very modern, doubtful and resolute, ironic, pedantic, hurt and ruthless. The New Pope Two-time Academy Award ® nominees John Malkovich and Jude Law star in Academy Award® winner Paolo Sorrentino s stunning vision for the world of the modern papacy.

Written and directed by internationally celebrated auteur Paolo Sorrentino, with co-writers Umberto Contarello and Stefano Bises, The New Pope marks Sorrentino s second series set in the world of the modern papacy. Pius XIII (Jude Law) is in a coma. After an unpredictable and mysterious time, the Secretary of State Voiello succeeds in the enterprise of having the charming, sophisticated and moderate English aristocrat Sir John Brannox (John Malkovich) placed on the papal throne with the name John Paul III. The new pope seems perfect, but he conceals secrets and a certain fragility. Quickly, he begins to realise that it will not be easy to replace the charismatic Pius XIII who, hanging between life and death, has become a Saint with thousands of faithful followers now idolizing him. Meanwhile, the Church is under attack from several scandals that risk irreversibly devastating the hierarchies of the Church, and the key principles of Christianity upon which they are based. As always, nothing is as it originally seems in the Vatican. Good and evil march arm in arm through this historic institution, right up until the final showdown…
