WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In 2012, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio (Pryce) meets with Pope Benedict XVI (Hopkins) to request permission to retire from the Catholic Church. Both men find their differing views of the world clashing, but they ultimately must come to an understanding if the organisation can move forward in a rapidly-changing world…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce play Popes past and present in an insightful new drama that manages the seemingly-impossible and makes a film about two elderly gentlemen having a chat feel extremely cinematic.
