The Two Popes (12A)
January 14th 7:45 pm
Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce take on the divine challenge of interpreting the conversations between Pope Benedict XVI as he faces succession by Pope Francis. Witty, irreverent yet also revealing about the burden of leading the church, this is a brilliant actors’ showcase.
Fernando Meirelles (The City of God) considers Benedict’s unthinkable decision to retire, with Francis his confessor and disciple. This is a frequently hilarious duel that probes the real questions of faith, as the popes enjoy a pizza and a football match.
