Freud’s Last Session

In 1939 London, Sigmund Freud debates God's existence with C.S. Lewis amidst the looming war.


Why watch this film?

Freud's Last Session brings forth an intriguing situation: Freud (Anthony Hopkins, from The Father and The Silence of the Lambs) invites the iconic writer C.S. Lewis to discuss the existence of God – alongside Lewis's unconventional relationship with his best friend's mother and Freud's unique relationship with his lesbian daughter, Anna. Thus, with existential and philosophical dialogues, the film intertwines past, present, and fantasy, stepping out of the bounds of Freud's study into a dynamic journey.
