TIFF: The Two Popes: A NETFLIX FILM

In select theaters on November 27 and on Netflix December 20

ABOUT
THE TWO POPES:

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.
