American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car for Ford in order to defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
April 6th, 1917. As a regiment assembles to wage war deep in enemy territory, two soldiers are assigned to race against time and deliver a message that will stop 1,600 men from walking straight into a deadly trap.
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
Jonathan Pryce was inclined to reject the role when his agent called with the offer - he wasn't keen on playing a real-life person. Reading Anthony McCarten's script helped change his mind. He was asked on the day that Pope Francis was inaugurated. See more »
The movie implies that Bergoglio had a fiancée and almost got married. This is fake news. Amalia, the girl shown in the movie, is real-life Amalia Damante who grew up in Bergoglio's neighborhood and they often went to school together. In the book "Francis. The real story of his life" Damante explains that their so called "romance" is based on a love letter that Jorge Bergoglio wrote when he was 12 years old. In the book Damante says: "The media made me the pope's fiancée which is not true. We were 12 years old at this time and good friends, that's all." See more »
I've never felt compelled to write a review, but this time I felt I had to.
You see, this is a movie about two old guys, that believe in something I don't. The whole thing is pretty much just the two of them waking (slowly) and talking. No action, no beautiful woman, no explosions, no cursing. All the things I like in a movie and yet, I loved it.
It's well directed, planned, written and interpreted.
Thanks for making it, Netflix!
