A Dangerous Method

Directed by David Cronenberg. 1904. Jung (Michael Fassbender) is treating a mentally disturbed woman (Keira Knightley) using controversial techniques. But when he has a sordid affair with her, Jung's relationship with his mentor Freud is torn apart.



David Cronenberg directs this drama based on the relationship between the two founding fathers of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. The film, which draws from both the stage play, 'Taking the Cure', by Christopher Hampton and the 1993 book, 'A Most Dangerous Method', by John Kerr, also portrays Jung's sexual affair with one of his female patients.
