Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce star in this intimate look at a historic turning point in the Catholic Church. The film tells the story of two imaginary dialogues between pope Benedict XVI (Anthony Hopkins) and Bishop Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce). This is a smart and original look at two different visions of the future of the Catholic Church and a fantastic character study of two historical figures interpreted by actors at the top of their talent. Academy Award nominee Fernando Meirelles (City of God) directed The Two Popes.
The soundtrack to The Two Popes features a beautiful, elegant score by composer and musician Bryce Dessner (Transpecos, The Revenant) alongside needle drops such as Cuando Tenga la Tierra by Mercedes Sosa, Minguito by Dino Saluzzi, Besame Mucho by Ray Conniff and Sastanaqqam by Tinariwen!
The Two Popes is out now on Netflix !
