Film review - Two Popes

The Two Popes is a wonderful film about the transition of the Papacy from Pope Benedict XVI to Pope Francis. Anthony Hopkins plays Ratzinger and Jonathan Pryce plays Bergoglio.

The film describes the spiritual journeys of both men and their very different personalities. Both very strong people discover their humility as they struggle with the spiritual and religious role required of them in assuming the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church.

I found the film quite moving several times as these two men struggle to create a friendship and mutual understanding based on a spiritual sensibility which is absent in life today.

I highly recommend this film for a thoughtful, mature audience.

Two Popes is streaming on Netflix.
