Netflix Unveil the First Look Image, Synopsis and Toronto International Film Festival Announcement for Fernando Meirelles’ THE TWO POPES


24 July 2019

On behalf of Netflix, The Fan Carpet are pleased to share with you the first look image & synopsis for THE TWO POPES that has just been announced as a Special Presentation in the Toronto International Film Festival programme.

SYNOPSIS:

From Fernando Meirelles, the Academy Award-nominated director of “City of God,” and three-time Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Anthony McCarten, comes an intimate story of one of the most dramatic transitions of power in the last 2,000 years. Frustrated with the direction of the church, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) requests permission to retire in 2012 from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins). 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. Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences between both tradition and progress, guilt and forgiveness, as these two very different men confront their pasts in order to find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world.
