Drama is about conflict and so my fear is that the screenwriter will invent a conflict between these two popes that doesn’t exist and make everybody dumber as a result. I also fear they will turn it into a simple-minded Good Francis vs. Evil Benedict narrative. There’s an outside chance they will turn it into a Cool Francis vs. Square Benedict tale, but that’s less likely, I think.
Trads will, I fear, be gravely disappointed if they are hoping for a Good Benedict vs. Evil Francis narrative. And personally, I am virtually certain that my hope for a human Benedict with human Francis narrative is least likely of all. The soundtrack already tells me the story will be Francis-centric, which I think is a shame since both men are equally interesting but Benedict, being shy and quiet, tends to get short shrift. He has not lived a cinematic life.
