Freud's Last Session

Running time: 108 mins

Synopsis

London, September 3rd, 1939. The world is on the brink of war.

In his final days, Sigmund Freud, a recent escapee with his daughter from the Nazi regime, receives a visit from the formidable Oxford Don C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia). On this day, two of the greatest minds of the twentieth century intimately engage in a monumental session over the belief in the future of mankind and the existence of God.

Freud’s mortality, and what Lewis believes comes after death, further fuels their discussion, as the two men clash and question each other about science, faith, love, the human condition, and what divides — and could possibly unite — the aspirations of the mind and the needs of the soul.

Directed and written by MATTHEW BROWN (writer-director of The Man Who Knew Infinity) from playwright MARK ST. GERMAIN’s acclaimed stage drama, FREUD’S LAST SESSION explores questions facing all of us, and sees a historical moment that echoes current conflicts, seeks to understand free will, faith, and mortality, and explores how two renowned intellects find connection across a seemingly unbridgeable difference.
