‘Two Popes’ opens for week at Enzian

Orlando Sentinel - - PEOPLE & ARTS - By Hal Boedeker hboedeker @or­lan­dosen­tinel.com

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.
