Pope John Paul II -- the first head of the Catholic Church to hail from Poland -- is the subject of this Giacomo Battiato-helmed biopic filmed on location in Italy and Poland and scored by legendary composer Ennio Morricone. With Piotr Adamczyk taking on the role of the beloved pope, the film chronicles the pontiff's part in the fall of communism, the assassination attempt that nearly cost him his life, his impact on youth and more.
