Roger Crane: The Last Confession
Directed by Jonathan Church
In 1978, a little-known country priest is inaugurated as Pope John Paul I in an uneasy compromise. With the promise of liberal reforms, the “Smiling Pope” warns three hostile cardinals that they will be removed. Thirty-three days after his election, he is found dead and no autopsy is performed.
But that’s only the beginning of the story…
David Suchet (Agatha Christie’s Poirot, PBS) stars in this mystery, inspired by the true-life event.
