Movie Night Corner
Welcome guest host David Facey-Crowther for Movie Night at St Paul's!
David will be introducing and presenting a favourite movie of his, namely Nanni Moretti's gently
moving 2011 film Habemus Papam - We Have a
Starring veteran actor Michel Piccoli, this film is
set in the not-so-distant days following the death
of a long-serving beloved Pontiff and the election
of his successor. The new pope, however, is a
reluctant one and the movie tells the story of man
struggling to make sense of the massive responsibility suddenly and unexpectedly placed upon him.
With the pressures of the media, the faithful, his
cardinals and an atheist psychiatrist all bearing
down on him, the new Pope flees the Vatican for a
soul-searching journey through Rome, He reaches back to his roots as an actor as the film explores the nature of those untaken paths of our
lives, those alternate decisions and what-ifs.
Funny, moving, sad and bittersweet all at the
same time, you won't want to miss this special
Movie Night screening.
Friday, May 1st in the King's Room/Library.
Please enter through the BIG RED Labyrinth door
