Netflix : ‘The Two Popes’ premieres at TIFF 2019

Netflix Film, The Two Popes, starring Anthony Hopkins and Johnathan Pryce, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival 2019.

From Fernando Meirelles, the Academy Award-nominated director of City of God, and three-time Academy Award-nominated screenwriter, Anthony McCarten, comes an intimate story of one of the most dramatic transitions of power in the last 2,000 years.

Frustrated with the direction of the church, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) requests permission to retire in 2012 from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins). Instead, facing scandal and self-doubt, the introspective Pope Benedict summons his harshest critic, and future successor to Rome, to reveal a secret that would shake the foundations of the Catholic Church.

Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences between both tradition and progress, guilt and forgiveness, as these two very different men confront their pasts in order to find common ground, and forge a future for a billion followers around the world.

Coming soon to Netflix!
