Paolo Sorrentino on Lust, Religion and ‘The New Pope’

We met Italian director  Paolo Sorrentino in his home in Los Feliz, Los Angeles  - where the director moved six months ago with his wife and son - to talk about the HBO series The New Pope, a sequel of  The Young Pope, which he created, co-wrote and directed. Sorrentino, whose The Great Beauty won the Golden Globe (and an Academy Award) for Best Foreign Film in 2013, is busy preparing a new HBO series as well as the movie Mob Girl, based on Theresa Carpenter's novel (Jennifer Lawrence will play the lead).
