Plot Summary

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. Written by Netflix

Trivia Jonathan Pryce commented on his physical resemblance to Pope Francis at the Toronto International Film Festival: "The day Pope Francis was declared Pope, the Internet was full of images of me and him, and 'Is Jonathan Pryce the Pope?' Even my son texted me, 'Dad are you the Pope?'" See more »
Goofs The movie implies that Jorge Bergoglio cooperated with the Argentinian junta and therefore was exiled once the rule of the military was over. This is not true. Bergoglio stopped being the provincial superior of the Society of Jesus in Argentina in 1979 (not 1983 as shown in the movie) because his terms were over at this time. After that he wasn't banished but served as the rector of the Philosophical and Theological Faculty of San Miguel in San Miguel until 1986. It is also not true that Bergoglio became fond of liberation theology at this time. The opposite is true - Bergoglio refused to teach his disciples liberation theology and chose a direct pastoral approach instead. This was the reason for his dismissal in 1986. See more »
