Writer: Anthony McCarten
Director: Fernando Meirelles
Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Jonathan Pryce, Juan Minujin

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.
Inspired by true events.
