We Have A Pope
Cardinal Bergoglio New Pope
Life imitates art.
There was a movie released in theaters last year, WE HAVE A POPE.
Today, 76 year old Cardinal Bergoglio, a Jesuit from Argentina, (who is of Italian descent), was announced as the new Pope.
We Have A Pope release date 2012
The About face: A story centered on the relationship between the newly elected Pope and his therapist. (Sounds a lot like The King's Speech).
The Wild side: The newly elected Pope suffers a panic attack just as he is due to appear on St Peter’s balcony to greet the faithful, who have been patiently awaiting the conclave’s decision. His advisors, unable to convince him he is the right man for the job, seek help from a renowned psychoanalyst (and atheist). But his fear of the responsibility suddenly thrust upon him is one that he must face on his own. The Latin translation of the title of the movie is Habemus Papam, as is evidenced in the poster below.
