Karl Jung (Michael Fassbender) takes a manic and uncontrollable patient in Sabrina Spielren (Keira Knightley) and starts to treat her with Sigmund Freud's "talking cure" in David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method. Beginning in 1904, Jung uses the publicly mistrusted treatment of psychoanalysis to heal Sabrina, and his professional life instigates a friendship with the poised and removed Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), the father of psychoanalysis... but as Sabrina gets healthier, Jung's relationship with her becomes more than just professional. In the years leading up to World War I, Jung, Freud, and Spielren's relationships with one another change as the balance between their desires, repressions, and needs for control shift. With Vincent Cassel. On DVD and Blu Ray.
