This film was last shown on 4 July 2024

On the eve of the Second World War and the end of his life, Sigmund Freud invites iconic author C.S. Lewis 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. The movie interweaves past, present and fantasy, bursting from the confines of Freud’s study on a dynamic journey.

Anthony Hopkins, winner of two Academy Awards, stars as Sigmund Freud, and Matthew Goode stars as C.S. Lewis. The film is based on the stage play of the same name by Mark St. Germain, which itself is based upon the book The Question of God, by Armand Nicholi.
