Pope Dreams

Movie Summary

Director:
Patrick Hogan
Released:
2006
Rating:
Not Available
Pope Dreams features Andy Venable (Philip Vaden), a heavy metal drummer and gifted songwriter, who is hemmed in by his unskilled band, his tedious job at his father's (Stephen Tobolowsky) warehouse, and some difficult family dynamics. Marking time with the band and the job, Andy's one desire is to organize a visit to the Vatican for his mother (Julie Hagerty), who has terminal cancer. His mother's illness and impending death has rendered his siblings and father helpless due to their fear and grief. Andy continues to drift aimlessly until Brady (Marnette Patterson), a manipulative schemer, walks into his life. Brady wants to get back together with her boyfriend, a young man who her father (David Shatraw) dislikes, and decides to pick up a stereotypical heavy metal rocker. She reasons that after a few dates, her father will see the merits of her old boyfriend. Brady targets Andy for the role, but she soon discovers that Andy does not fit the part; he is reserved, easy-going and very likeable. Up until this point, the director, Patrick Hogan, makes good use of time-honored coming-of-age story lines, but he then creatively takes these in a new direction which results in a very different conclusion.moreless
