WATCH: Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins Star in THE TWO POPES Coming to Netflix on December 20, 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 elements from their pasts in order to find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world. The film has won numerous awards including:

a. Winner - Audience Award for US Cinema, Mill Valley Film Festival

b. Winner - Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature, Hamptons International Film Festival

c. Winner - Audience Award for Best Narrative Film, Middleburg Film Festival
