Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) and Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) tussle over the future of the Catholic Church in this thrillingly cinematic two-hander. Director Fernando Mereilles’ technical bravura depicts compassion, self-doubt, shame and pride as the intimate debate between these two powerful men progresses. The chemistry between Hopkins and Pryce is a delight to behold – both actors in their prime and relishing the rich dialogue that crackles with humour.
