A new miniseries/film is in the works, Sotto il Cielo di Roma, Under the Roman Sky. It will star James Cromwell as Ven. Pius XII and deal with his to save the Jews of Rome.
Not new news, but it’s good news.
From what I can make out, it will be in two parts, of 100 minutes each.
When the trailer was made they obviously didn’t have their own musical score yet, since they have recycled music from other films, including Lord of the Rings and, oddly, Forest Gump. That is not uncommon with trailers long in advance of films, btw.
Hopefully this film will do something to dispel lies about Ven. Pius XII.
Pope Benedict attended a screening. That would have to be a little intimidating, no? Knowing that you sit at the same desk… occupy the same cathedra… in times that are becoming more and more difficult.
