Trivia: The director only came across Jonathan Pryce because he was searching for photos of Pope Francis, and the two people were frequently being compared as they look so similar. He looked into Pryce's body of work and realised he'd be an excellent choice for the part.
The Two Popes (2019)
1 trivia entry
Directed by: Fernando Meirelles
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Jonathan Pryce, Sidney Cole
Character mistake: The main storyline of the movie is set in 2012. When Bergoglio is at the Pope summer residence the first evening and he switches off the football match, he says to the Holy Father that Germany might play against Argentina "next year." Bergoglio is a football fanatic and there's no way he would have not known that the World Cup was to take place in the summer of 2014, not 2013. (00:35:00)
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio: It's not easy to entrust oneself to God's mercy. I know He has a very special capacity for forgetting our mistakes. God forgets, but I don't.
