So, heard any good Pope jokes lately? Charlotteans can partake in their own papal drama when they check out We Have a Pope, the latest offering from the Charlotte Film Society. Co-written and directed by Nanni Moretti (whose Cannes winner The Son's Room was brought to town by the CFS back in 2002), this Italian import stars Michel Piccoli as Cardinal Melville, who's stunned when he's chosen to become the new Pope. After his refusal to accept the post panics the Vatican inner circle, they opt to hire a psychiatrist (played by Moretti himself) to examine him.
