The Two Popes

Sunday 23rd February 5:00 PM


If I tell you this is basically a dialogue between Pope Benedict and (soon to be) Pope Francis you might expect some weighty discussions...but would you expect comedy? If I tell you they are played by Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce, you will expect some great acting. All of this is true here:

"Fernando Meirelles' film deftly pulls off the knotty challenge of dealing lightly with complex dynamics and weighty themes, all delivered by pitch-perfect performances from two veteran British thesps. Funny, engrossing and thoughtful, the result is Meirelles' most entertaining and watchable film since 'City Of God'" - Ian Freer, Empire.

Netflix have finally realised they have to allow their films to show in real cinemas so come and along and enjoy this one while we can.


“There's a simple pleasure in watching these two actors bring levity to godly men in their stiff robes.”

Clarisse Loughrey, Independent

“With great writing, smart direction and late career-high performances from Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce, it's a high-end treat.”

Ian Freer, Empire.
