STORYLINE:

A Dangerous Method (2011) delves into the complex relationship between Dr. Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), his mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), and the troubled but brilliant patient Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley). Set against the backdrop of the early 20th century, the film explores the birth of psychoanalysis, the clash of ideas between Jung and Freud, and the tumultuous personal and professional dynamics that shape their lives and careers.


STAFF REVIEW:

A Dangerous Method (2011) is a thought-provoking exploration of the early days of psychoanalysis, brought to life by David Cronenberg's meticulous direction. The film benefits from powerful performances by its lead actors, particularly Keira Knightley, whose portrayal of Sabina Spielrein is both intense and nuanced. The intellectual and emotional depth of the story, combined with its historical significance, makes it a compelling watch for those interested in the roots of modern psychology.
