11 Apr 2023 : News Desk
Freud's Last Session
The Irish / UK co-production is supported by Fís Éireann / Screen Ireland and the UK Global Screen Fund. Filming is at its final stages in Ireland.

Anthony Hopkins (The Father, The Silence of The Lambs) and Matthew Goode (Watchmen, The Imitation Game) star as psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud (Hopkins) and writer and academic C.S. Lewis (Goode), prior to his Chronicles Of Narnia fame. 

Set on the eve of the Second World War, at the end of his life, Freud invites author C.S. Lewis to debate the existence of God. Interweaving past, present and fantasy, the film explores Freud’s unique relationship with his daughter Anna, and Lewis’ unconventional relationship with his best friend’s mother.

The film is directed by Matthew Brown (The Man Who Knew Infinity) and written by playwright Mark St. Germain (The God Committee), based on his play of the same name. Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O’Sullivan are producing for Subotica Productions (Aisha, Joyride). Niamh Fagan is executive producer for Screen Ireland. It is also produced by Alan Greisman, Hannah Leader, Rick Nicita, Robert Stillman, and Meg Thomson.

The project reunites Academy Award-winning production designer Luciana Arrighi (Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris, Howards End) with director Matthew Brown, the two previously collaborated on The Man Who Knew Infinity. Cinematographer Ben Smithard (The Son, Downton Abbey) who previously worked on The Father with Hopkins has also joined the project. Costume designer Eimer Ni Mhaoldomhnaigh (The Banshees of Inisherin, Love & Friendship), BAFTA award-winning make-up designer Morna Ferguson (The Wonder), and editor Paul Tothill (Atonement) complete the creative team.

The film’s release date is TBC.
