Don’t they look dapper?! DNEG TV VFX Supervisor Simone Coco and Executive Producer Louise Hussey attended The Young Pope press premiere in Venice this Summer
The Young Pope’s is hotly tipped to become everyone’s favourite cult viewing receiving rave reviews from the likes of The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, The Guardian and The Telegraph:
‘From the look of the first two hours screened in Venice, this is a potential hit for Sky, HBO and Canal+, combining the Italian director’s sardonic, Fellini-inspired gift for the bizarre with the world’s ever-growing hunger to peep behind the screens at St. Peter’s — a match made in heaven.’ Hollywood Reporter
‘What a delicious conceit: an American is elected pope, and turns out to be far more conservative than the College of Cardinals could ever have imagined. Add Paolo Sorrentino, one of the more inventively scathing commentators on society’s ills in recent years, and the combination already sounds irresistible’ Variety
‘it’s all very strange, anxious, whimsical and surreal; Jude Law is on top form as the cunning, troubled young Pontiff. Actually, this might yet turn out to be Sorrentino’s Twin Peaks.’ The Guardian
‘with this first episode, Sorrentino has set the stage for both a spiky war of wills and a twisting character study – a sacred mystery shot through with stabs of the profane.’The Telegraph
The Young Pope is lining up to be ‘event TV’ at its finest. Don’t miss out
