Has anyone else seen this yet? I found it to be a solid film on all counts (acting, storytelling, visuals, morality). As I said to Jessica afterwards, this is what a truly Christian film should aspire to be: multidimensional characters (esp. Pryce's Bergoglio, but Hopkins' Ratzinger as well) authentically wrestling with contemporary dilemmas and their own frailties, seeking guidance from their faith. As a former Christian, their talk - of seeing God's guidance in accidental encounters, seeking to hear God's voice - rang true. The film came close to heavy-handedness only once, in its talk of certain leaders wanting to build walls, but mostly was poignant in its contemporary relevance. And its touches of humor only added to its charm.
