THE TWO POPES

THE TWO POPES

Fernando Meirelles · UK/Italy · 2019 · 125 mins · Not Rated
IMDbRotten Tomatoes
It is extremely difficult to make something as invisible and ineffable as religious faith seem real, let alone touching, on film; doing that is only one of the achievements of Fernando Meirelles’ unusual look inside the papacy. In 2013, the former Cardinal Ratzinger, now serving as the dogmatic Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins), is exhausted by scandals and burdened by solitude when he calls his chief rival, Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires (Jonathan Pryce), to his side. The sparring between the conservative and the reformer is the film’s gripping (and occasionally comic) centrepiece. Hopkins and Pryce’s finely tuned performances illuminate Benedict’s shrewd intelligence and Francis’s deep humility. Whether this speculative drama is true or not, the men’s arrangement to save their church is both dramatic and moving. –The Globe and Mail
“A film that never fails to lose intrigue, it's sometimes riveting, touching and quite hilarious.” Discussing Film
“A smart, empathetic film about the need for both resilience and uncertainty in a faithful heart.” RogerEbert.com
Cast Jonathan Pryce, Anthony Hopkins, Juan Minujín
