Directed by Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, the Academy Award-winning The Great Beauty, The Young Pope), The Hand of God opens in select theatres in December and on Netflix on December 15.
From writer and director Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, the Academy Award-winning The Great Beauty, The Young Pope) comes the story of a boy, Fabietto Schisa, set in the tumultuous Naples of the 1980s. The Hand of God is a story full of unexpected joys, such as the arrival of football legend Diego Maradona, and an equally unexpected tragedy. Fate plays its part, joy and tragedy intertwine, and Fabietto’s future is set in motion. Sorrentino returns to his hometown to tell his most personal story, a tale of fate and family, sports and cinema, love and loss.
