Mark Lewis, who made Don’t F**k with Cats, is back with another docuseries for Netflix. Netflix has put out a lot of true crime content in the past few months, like the controversial Jeffrey Dahmer series Monster and its follow-up documentary Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes. Vatican Girl: The Disappearance of Emanuela Orlandi is already getting some criticism for how it handles conspiracy theories.
The new British documentary series is about what happened to Emanuela Orlandi, who was 15, and if the Vatican had anything to do with it or not. As you might expect, making a true crime show about the Pope and the Vatican will raise some eyebrows, but this case has been interesting to people for decades.
In 1983, Orlandi went missing in front of the Opus Dei church. Her father worked at the Vatican. There have been many possible suspects, including Turkish terrorists, the Italian mafia, and even Pope John Paul II.
What is Vatican Girl?
Vatican Girl tries to figure out what happened to Orlandi and if she could still be alive after all this time. The show looks at this case from just about every angle you can think of, including talking to gangsters and breaking down terrorist plans.
There is also the disturbing idea that one of the cardinals might have sexually assaulted Orlandi and that her disappearance could have been a plan to protect the Vatican by using blackmail. The documentary also talks about a suspect who came forward and said he was behind Orlandi’s kidnapping, but his story doesn’t hold up for long.
The number of episodes of Vatican Girl: The Disappearance of Emanuela Orlandi
The investigation series has a total of four episodes, and each one is about an hour long or more. Now, you can watch Vatican Girl: The Disappearance of Emanuela Orlandi on Netflix.
