‘Two Popes’ opens for week at Enzian
Netflix’s “The Two Popes” will open Friday for one week at Enzian.
The drama received four Golden Globe nominations on Monday. They were for best drama, actor in a drama (Jonathan Pryce), supporting actor (Anthony Hopkins) and screenplay (by Anthony McCarten).
The film explores the relationship between Pope Benedict XVI (Hopkins), who resigned in 2013, and his successor, Pope Francis (Pryce).
The brilliantly acted movie — Hopkins is especially fine — should be seen on the big screen for the Sistine Chapel scenes.
Enzian also has shown Netflix’s “Dolemite Is My Name” with Eddie Murphy and “The Irishman” with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. Those films are Golden Globe contenders as well. The prizes will be handed out Jan. 5 on NBC.
Because of its 3-hour, 30-minute running time, “The Irishman” screened just eight times at Enzian. “The Two Popes” will screen three times daily Friday through Sunday, once on Monday and twice Dec. 17-19. The film starts streaming Dec. 20 on Netflix. Check times at enzian.org.
Enzian will screen Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful
Life” at noon Saturday. The 1946 fantasy stars James Stewart and Donna Reed.
The Music Mondays series will offer “Downtown 81” at 9:30 p.m. Monday. The film focuses on artist Jean Michel Basquiat at 19 and explores the downtown New York art and music scene. The film was shot in 1980-81 but was released in 2000. Basquiat died in 1988.
Continuing through Thursday at Enzian are the drama “Waves” and the horror film “In Fabric.”
Enzian is at 1300 S. Orlando Ave. in Maitland.
