Drama, Suspense/Thriller

In David Cronenberg's surprisingly non-delirious film, two titans of psychotherapy fight over theories of repression, the meaning of dreams and a disturbed and beautiful patient who frolics in a puddle and shouts that her interests are "suicide and interplanetary travel." Hubba hubba! The two titans in question are Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen). The patient, also an aspiring psychotherapist, is Sabina Spielrein, played by Keira Knightley. Although she's liberated from a terrible affliction by the discovery that she's turned on by being beaten, the hang-ups of Jung are the film's hidden center.
