Anthony Hopkins plays Sigmund Freud in a fictional meeting with C.S. Lewis in a film adaptation of the 2009 play 'Freud’s Last Session'
The film provides an intellectual exercise imagining a debate between Freud, a non-believer, and Lewis, a theologian, on the existence of God
The story is set in 1939, three weeks before Freud's suicide at age 83, during a time of societal and global division
Matthew Brown, the film's director, aims to make the largely dialogue-focused narrative visually engaging, featuring shared personal histories and evocative imagery
