3 Things to Know About Director Paolo Sorrentino

Get to know the Italian visionary behind The Young Pope.

1
He likes to keep it weird.

Case in point: his English-language debut, This Must Be the Place, starred Sean Penn as a retired Goth-rock star determined to track down his late father’s Nazi torturer.

2
The Great Beauty was his breakthrough.

The visually intoxicating chronicle of one man’s rise to the top of Rome’s nightlife scene earned Sorrentino an Oscar — and Golden Globe—for Best Foreign Film.

3
He had Jude Law at hello.

“There’s always something poetic and impressionistic [about his work]," the actor said about Sorrentino. "I was in before I really opened the script.”
