An Internet obsession before it premiered in the United States, this HBO drama stars Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley, Sherlock Holmes) as the newly elected Pope Pius XIII. The Vatican believes that history's first American Pope will be obedient and docile, but the former Father Lenny Belardo has his own ideas: to destroy and reform. From maximalist Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, this HBO miniseries is gorgeous to watch and often shocking. The cast includes Diane Keaton as Sister Mary, Silvio Orlando as Cardinal Voiello, and James Cromwell as Cardinal Michael Spencer. A second season is in development. 10 episodes, 8 ½ hrs, 3 DVDs. Mature audiences. XB2882 $49.99.
