Video Interview: The Two Popes

"The Two Popes," which debuted at the Telluride Film Festival, has been a hit with audiences on the festival circuit and lands on Netflix this Friday after a small theatrical run. Directed by Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles ("City of God") and masterfully written by Anthony McCarten ("Darkest Hour," "The Theory of Everything," "Bohemian Rhapsody"), it imagines a series of conversations between Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) and the future Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) behind Vatican walls. Together they must find common ground to forge a new path for the Catholic Church.
