Movie Review: The Two Popes

Image: Netflix

I really enjoyed watching The Two Popes on Netflix. Jonathan Pryce's performance as Jorge Bergoglio is outstanding! I'm no fan of the Catholic Church, but the narrative and progression in the discussions between the two characters works very well and as a story telling device, the film is excellent. Not to be mistaken for a documentary though :-)
