Pope Joan (Die Papstin) (2009)

Yes, Pope Joan never really existed so this is a make-believe biopic.

Even so, it feels so plausible and believable thanks to it being one of the best-researched period dramas, not unlike recent HBO/BBC productions like Rome and The Borgias.

Its seriousness is delicious punctuated by John Goodman as Pope Joan's predecessor.
