The Two Popes (Netflix) Overview

Disillusioned by the Church's direction and its refusal to change with the times, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) requests permission from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) to retire. However, Pope Benedict, a stern traditionalist, reveals that he wants to step down himself, and he fears that having Bergoglio leave at the same time could be perceived as a protest. He summons his harshest critic and future successor to Rome to reveal a secret that could shake the foundations of the Catholic Church.

Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences between tradition and progress 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. Inspired by true events.
