The Young Pope, which stars Jude Law and Ludivine Sagnier, held its premiere at the 73rd Venice Film Festival and the red carpet event was a star-studded affair. The HBO series is directed by Oscar winner Paolo Sorrentino and tells the story of the first American to be handed the papacy. In becoming pope, Lenny Belardo (Law) also became the youngest pontiff in history and his appointment soon turns into a game of wits as he contends with other authoritative figures, including the Vatican Secretary of State, on how to take the church forward. The series also stars Diane Keaton and James Cromwell.
