Plot: Frustrated with the direction of the church, Cardinal Bergoglio requests permission to retire in 2012 from Pope Benedict. 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.

Four artists at the peak of their power.
Much has been made of the brilliance of the two title performers, and deservedly so. Both Hopkins and Pryce are absolutely convincing as German and Argentinean pontiffs who converse in English (conveniently for viewers) as their common language. Each actor is so fresh and alive within the personality of his “character” that I was easily persuaded they may be truer to the souls of these men than the living originals. Not enough credit has been paid to Anthony McCarten, the writer of this complex, layered conversation. It is the kind of dialogue great men wish they had spoken. What courage and skill it takes to undertake such a verbal tour de force. (Imagine if world leaders couldn’t hire speech writers. Could Shakespeare’s kings and queens really speak as well as he wrote for them?) McCarten has written the scripts for three Oscar-winning actors; isn’t it time he was recognized? And Fernando Meirelles is the masterful director who brought all the elements together. This is a renaissance man, adept in many fields, from architecture to cinema–and organic farming as well. He has been nominated for one directing Oscar (for “City of God”), and here he shows his ability to maintain both visual interest and intellectual fascination through two hours of what amounts to an intense, extended talk. That the movie never felt “talky” is a tribute to all four great artists.
Truly a great movie to see!
Loved and cried through this movie. You will enjoy this movie no matter your faith or lack of faith. A very human view of the Pope. The two actors portraying them were awesome. My only hope is that Pope Francis’s message reaches the world. If you feel you are not personally responsible for what is happening worldwide, we are all at fault. Thank you, Netflix, for making it readily available for all of us to watch without spending a bunch!
