The director of the movie is Matthew Brown, whom we know from the movie “The Man Who Knew Infinity”; scripted by Mark St. Germain adapted it from the play of the same title, which he also wrote.
Set in the aftermath of World War II, the film focuses on Freud’s final years and describes how Freud invites CS Lewis, author of “The Chronicles of Narnia,” to a discussion on the existence of God. Touching upon Sigmund Freud’s relationship with his lesbian daughter, Anna, and CS Lewis’s romance with his best friend’s mother, “Freud’s Last Session” goes far beyond the confines of Freud’s work with its story blending past and fantasy.
“Beyond my own intellectual curiosity and inclination towards this film, there is a deep awareness of how timely and important this film is,” said Director Brown.
