David Cronenberg’s (Videodrome, Dead Ringers) next film, A Dangerous Mind will follow the relationship between the fathers of psychoanalysis, Carl Jung (Michael Fassenbender) and his mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Motensen). Sabrina Spielrein (Keira Knightly) is the Russian patient who causes a rift in the two doctors friendship when she begins to have more than a doctor/patient relationship with Jung.
Method is based on Christopher Hampton’s 2003 play, The Talking Cure.
