Inspired by true events, this biographical comedy-drama takes an intimate look at a key turning point in the history of the Catholic Church. In 2012, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) asks Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) for permission to retire, frustrated with the guidance of the church and Pope Benedict himself. However, Pope Benedict takes this as an opportunity to invite Bergoglio – then unknowingly, his future successor - to Rome to share a secret that would upturn the very foundations of the Catholic faith. To protect the beliefs of the billion followers around the world, these two opposing figures must work at finding some common ground. The Two Popes is a heartfelt and incredibly witty approach to illustrating the complex inner-workings of the Catholic church, depicting its two most influential presences over the last two decades with intelligence and humility.
