Freud's Last Session

Dir: Matt Brown
Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Matthew Goode, Liv Lisa Fries
109 mins

On the eve of the Second World War and the end of his life, Sigmund Freud invites iconic author C.S. Lewis for a debate over the existence of God. Innovatively, the film explores Freud’s unique relationship with his lesbian daughter Anna, and Lewis’ unconventional romance with his best friend’s mother. The thought-provoking film interweaves past, present and fantasy, bursting from the confines of Freud’s study on a dynamic journey.

Sir Anthony Hopkins is on towering form in this intellectually stirring drama, imagining a seismic meeting of two great minds, as the debating duo unravel Lewis’ post-war trauma and Freud’s complicated interpersonal relationships. Previously adapted for the stage, Matthew Brown’s compelling film – co-written by playwright Mark St. Germain – is an unmissable cinematic session which mines deep into life’s big questions.
