In A Dangerous Method director David Cronenberg teams up with Viggo Mortensen to examine the birth of psychoanalysis. Sort of. Mostly, its a look at the intense relationship between Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Mortensen). Jung takes on a Russian woman, Sabina Spielrein (Kiera Knightely), as a patient. It deals with some of the sexual ideas and theories that Freud and Jung eventually come up with because of Sabina’s actions and mental states.
A Dangerous Method is slated for release on November 23rd, 2011.
