On the eve of WWII, two of the greatest minds of the 20th Century, author C.S. Lewis and psychologist Sigmund Freud, converge for their own personal battle over the existence of God, each with opposing views.
Freud's Last Session interweaves the lives of Freud and Lewis, past, present, and through fantasy, bursting from the confines of Freud's study on a dynamic journey.
The film stars Anthony Hopkins, Matthew Goode, Liv Lisa Fries and Jodi Balfour.
Sigmund Freud and Oxford theologian C.S. Lewis — whose Chronicles of Narnia books would later gain worldwide acclaim — is an atheist turned Christian now hoping to confront the "Father of Psychoanalysis" about the gap between science and religion, faith and logic, and how studying the mind may miss the path of the soul.

It's produced by Alan Greisman, Hannah Leader, Tristan Lynch, Rick Nicita, Robert Stillman, Meg Thomson. Featuring cinematography by Ben Smithard, and music by Coby Brown.
