Anthony Hopkins and Matthew Goode star in Freud’s Last Session
Anthony Hopkins and Matthew Goode

Sony Pictures Classics acquired Freud’s Last Session, directed by Matt Brown (The Man Who Knew Infinity) and based on his play of the same name. The film stars Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins and Emmy® nominee Matthew Goode (The Crown, Burning Man, The Offer).

Production is set to begin in the UK in late January 2023.

On the eve of the Second World War and the end of his life, Sigmund Freud (Hopkins) invites iconic author C.S. Lewis (Goode) for a debate over the existence of God. Innovatively, the film explores Freud’s unique relationship with his lesbian daughter Anna, and Lewis’ unconventional romance with his best friend’s mother. Freud’s Last Session interweaves past, present and fantasy, bursting from the confines of Freud’s study on a dynamic journey.

“We are so excited to have Sony Pictures Classics on board our film,” said Brown. “They have a long history of supporting independent filmmakers’ visions and offering audiences dynamic stories told from a global perspective. I am thrilled to be working with them on Freud’s Last Session from such an early stage.”
