About the Film:

Freud’s Last Session features an all-star cast, including Sir Anthony Hopkins as Sigmund Freud, Matthew Goode as C.S. Lewis, and Liv Lisa Fries as Anna Freud. This imagined encounter at Maresfield Gardens—now the Freud Museum—sees Freud and C.S. Lewis engage in a profound debate over science, religion, faith, and the existence of God. The film also explores Freud’s relationship with his daughter Anna and Lewis’s unconventional romance with his best friend’s mother. Blending past, present, and fantasy, the film takes audiences on an enthralling journey beyond Freud’s study.
