The two Popes

Frustrated with the course of the Church, Cardinal Bergoglio asks Pope Benedict for permission to retire in 2012. The introspective Pope Benedict, plagued by the scandals of the Church and personal self-doubt, summons his fiercest critic and designated successor to Rome to reveal a secret that would shake the Catholic Church to its foundations. Behind the walls of the Vatican, a battle breaks out between tradition and progress, guilt and forgiveness. As these two very different men come to terms with their past, they try to find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world. Inspired by true events and adapted from the Golden Globe and Oscar nominated film starring Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce.
