Director Fernando Meirelles (City of God) delivers an intimate story of one of the most dramatic transitions of power in the last 2,000 years. Behind the Vatican walls, Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) and the future Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) must find common ground to forge a new path for the Catholic Church. Hopkins and Pryce give tremendous performances to carry this two-hander toward possible film award glory.
