"This is my calling."
Did you miss the epic movie event Pope Joan when it aired on Reelzchannel? Not to worry, this is your weekend to catch up, with the first half of Pope Joan airing this weekend at 3PM ET/12PT on Saturday and 11AM ET/8AM PT on Sunday as part of our Epic October movie series.
Based on the controversial international bestseller by Donna Woolfolk Cross, Pope Joan stars Johanna Wokalek in the titular role of a 9th century woman who decides to dress as a man and eventually rises through the Vatican ranks, eventually becoming the Pope, as well as the only woman to sit on the throne of St. Peter. Her time as the Pope was short-lived, and her tenure was omitted from papal records. Of course, many religious scholars consider the story fictitious and merely that of legend, but we'll let you decide. John Goodman (Argo) and David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings) co-star.
