Review by marty watkin (posted on 2-Apr-2005)

Saving Grace is a gentle movie with some bite to it. Someone described it to me as a western (villain, crisis, beautiful maiden, orphan boy, etc...) with a spiritual twist.

Tom Conti is superb as a reluctant pope who is on the verge of resigning his job. He escapes the Vatican and finds his joy in life refreshed by people in a poor Italian village. The movie tackles some rather meaty issues like poverty and work, God's role in our lives, what to do when everyone is against you, but all with humor. Great movie with a great message. Appropriate for families.
