The daddy of psychology, Sigmund Freud, takes a starring role in this drama based around his Swiss counterpart Carl Jung. Jung is the eager student, wanting to pick Freud’s brains on sexuality and emotions, after he meets hysterical patient Sabrina Spielrein. Russian-born Spielrein is a violent, severely traumatized 18-year-old who Jung tries his experimental ‘talking cure’ on. She talks, he just listens. Their sessions soon reveal a mixed up, emotional woman with confused sexual desires. As the married Jung grows closer to his patient, he also begins to clash with his mentor. Aragorn, whoops, sorry, Viggo Mortensen cuts a dash as the brooding Freud.
