Sigmund Freud (Anthony Hopkins) looks forward and holds up a single finger.

About Freud's Last Session

On the eve of the Second World War and the end of his life, Sigmund Freud (Anthony Hopkins) invites iconic author C.S. Lewis (Matthew Goode) for a debate over the existence of God. Innovatively, Matt Brown’s impressive film explores Freud’s unique relationship with his lesbian daughter Anna and Lewis’ unconventional romance with his best friend’s mother.

Based on Mark St. Germain's play (who also co-authored the screenplay), Hopkins and Goode deliver crafty and moving performances as two of the 20th century’s great minds, whose intellectual sparring demonstrates both men’s formidable strengths and emotional vulnerabilities as the drumbeat of war grows louder in the distance.
