The Two Popes

The Two Popes ★★★½

You may be wondering why I gave the popes talking movie such a high rating, so I'm going to describe a scene for you. The first time we see Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce meet they're in the bathroom washing their hands. Jonathan Pryce is whistling Dancing Queen by ABBA and Anthony Hopkins asks what hymn he's whistling. Jonathan Pryce then explains that he's whistling Dancing Queen by ABBA, chuckles, and leaves a bewildered Anthony Hopkins in the bathroom. Then, a few minutes later as all the cardinals or whatever are voting on who should be the next pope, an instrumental version of Dancing Queen by ABBA starts playing. And that's why it deserves every award nomination it's gotten.
