Storyline

In the vein of Good Will Hunting and Garden State, POPE DREAMS is a coming of age tale about a young man at a crossroads in life. Filled with heart, music, life, and loss. And a set of drums. Oh, and the Pope. POPE DREAMS is about a directionless nineteen-year old boy, Andy Venable, who works for his hard-case dad in a store warehouse during the day and plays drums in a loud heavy-metal band at night. His only clear goal at the moment is to get his sick mother, a devout Catholic, to meet the Pope before she dies. While he's busy with that, he falls for a girl who's totally out of his league and gets discovered by two Broadway producers for a musical talent that just might be his true calling. Andy's a dreamer. But dreaming is easy. It's reality that's hard. Written by the official Pope Dreams web site

Well developed characters
9 May 2006 | by (Dallas) – See all my reviews

Saw this film at the USA Film Festival in Dallas. It's a very well developed script, with believable characters, behaving in natural ways. In other words, it's an interesting story that's easy and enjoyable to watch. What more could one ask for in a world filled with mediocre writing, poorly directed and acted? The film has a terrific cast of newcomers and veterans, and is technically well made. The title can be a little misleading. It only refers to the fact the the son wants to send his ailing mom on a trip to Italy to see The Pope in-person. This is by no means a "religious" film. It's currently playing the festival circuit.I highly recommend it. Go see it, if it's showing near you...
