The Two Popes

The Two Popes ★★★★

What a delightful film! I had read some reviews and worried that knowing it was supposed to be heartwarming would somehow make it less so. But the movie delivers.

The script is witty and sharp and more emotional than I thought it would be, but really it’s Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce that are the heart and soul.

Jonathan Pryce just lights up the scene, he exudes warmth. And having watch him on GoT I I know he can provoke quite the opposite. So, all the more impressive.

I am not religious, so when I first became aware of the movie, I had no intention of watching it, but I’m so glad I did.
