Pope John Paul II
This epic film follows Karol Wojtyla’s journey from his youth in Poland through his late days on the Chair of St. Peter. It explores his life behind the scenes: how he touched millions of people and changed the face of the Church and the world; how he defended the dignity of mankind. Jon Voight’s powerful, Emmy-nominated performance as John Paul II was widely praised, as was Cary Elwes as the young Karol. Shot on location in Rome and Poland in close connection with the Vatican, this is the definitive epic film on the life of Pope John Paul II. Stars Jon Voight, Cary Elwes, Ben Gazzara, James Cromwell, and Christopher Lee. DVD includes many special features such as a sixteen-page collectors booklet with exclusive photos, interviews and more. Deleted and behind the scenes, the making of the movie and footage of the World Premiere screening at the Vatican with Pope Benedict XVI.
Voight is quite extraordinary. Besides doing a spot-on impersonation of Pope John Paul’s public persona, he ages most convincingly... It’s a heart wrenching portrayal.
The Movie is amazing. I knew that before I bought it, but if you need is ASAP like I did don't order it from Fishflix. I ordered it express mail and it came three days after it should have gotten there. That put me in a bind and I ended up having to drive the the National Basilica and buy it in there gift shop last minute, for the same price it cost me to express mail it online. My advice, buy the movie, its wonderful, but if possible, do it in person. (Posted on 11/21/15)
