Freud’s Last Session – Sharmill Films and Jump Street Films have today announced the release date for Freud’s Last Session, hitting Australian cinemas nationally on April 18, 2024.

Directed by Matt Brown (The Man Who Knew Infinity)and starring Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins (The Father) and Emmy nominee Matthew Goode (The Crown, Downton Abbey), Freud’s Last Session unfolds on the eve of the Second World War as two of the greatest minds of the 20th century, father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud (Hopkins) and children’s author C.S. Lewis (Goode), converge for their own personal battle over the existence of God, the future of mankind and the complex relationships that shaped them.

Adapted by Mark St. Germain from his off-Broadway smash, Freud’s Last Session interweaves the lives of Freud and Lewis – past, present, and through fantasy.

Director Matt Brown’s cinematic adaptation bursts through the walls of Freud’s study, taking the two characters on a dynamic journey across London.

Director Matt Brown said:

“Beyond my own intellectual curiosity and inclination towards this piece as the son of a psychiatrist, there is a deep recognition of how incredibly timely and important this film is. We live in an age that is so ideologically polarised, where everyone is stuck in their own tribes, with no real dialogue, no intellectual curiosity. I want to make a film for all audiences that can be emotional, thought-provoking and creative. A film that can ask the big questions, while investigating what’s at the heart of all human condition: love, faith and mortality.”

Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins (The Father) and Emmy nominee Matthew Goode (The Crown, Downton Abbey) deliver “sterling performances” (Deadline) as these two titans of the 20th century. The film also stars Liv Lisa Fries (Babylon Berlin), Jodi Balfour (For All Mankind), Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys), Jeremy Northam (The Crown) and Orla Brady (Star Trek: Picard).
