What happened between Pope Benedict XI (Anthony Hopkins) and the future Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) in the days before Benedict’s decision in 2013 to relinquish the papacy? Like THE QUEEN, THE TWO POPES—briskly directed by Fernando Meirelles (CITY OF GOD), and ingeniously scripted by Andrew McCarten (THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING) weds public record and creative speculation to create a gripping, heartfelt, and surprisingly funny consideration of recent world history.
