SYNOPSIS

Behind the Vatican walls, the conservative Pope Benedict and the liberal future Pope Francis must find common ground to forge a new path for the Catholic Church. A drama/comedy with Anthony Hopkins starring as Pope Benedict XVI and Jonathan Pryce starring as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the future Pope Francis.

REVIEWS
"Hopkins and Pryce's finely tuned performances illuminate Benedict's shrewd intelligence and Francis's deep humanity". (Globe and Mail).

"What makes "The Two Popes" so delightful, other than the very funny script, is watching two seasoned actors play off each other for two hours. Both Hopkins and Pryce illustrate what the craft of acting is really about." (The Wrap).

FUNDRAISING

Net proceeds to End Polio Now (www.endpolio.org) and other Rotary programmes.

 

Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988. In 2007, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation joined Rotary in its commitment to ending polio.

 

Since 2013, the Gates Foundation has matched every US$1 Rotary commits to polio eradication 2-to-1, currently up to US$50 million per year. Rotary, with matching funds from the Gates Foundation, has contributed more than US$2 billion to end polio.

 

Since we started the fight against polio, we’ve reduced the number of polio cases by 99.9 percent and reached more than 2.5 billion children with the vaccine. There are fewer polio cases today than ever before, but we will not stop until we reach zero. If polio is not eradicated, hundreds of thousands of children could be paralyzed. Global health care costs would rise dramatically, and many children’s quality of life would be drastically diminished.

 

Join us in the fight to end polio and help us save lives and give a child a chance at a prosperous future.
