The Two Popes 2019
In the Vatican, Pope Benedict and the future Pope Francis discuss and argue to find a consensus between their respective conservative and progressive viewpoints, to forge a new path for the Catholic Church. Brilliantly acted by Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins. Clever, subtle and entertaining.
A father and daughter live a secluded existence in a beautiful nature reserve in Oregon. When a small mistake reveals their existence to the authorities they are sent on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a new home. ‘a powerful and poignant story’… ‘immensely moving’…
In 2001 journalists of the Boston Globe set out to investigate allegations of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church. Gripping and intelligent dramatisation of a very painful and complex story which needs to be told.
