About this item
On the eve of World War I, the vibrant cities of Zurich and Vienna are the setting for a dark tale of sexual and intellectual discovery. Zurich, 1904. 29-year-old psychiatrist Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) is at the beginning of his career, and lives with his pregnant wife Emma (Sarah Gadon) at Burgholzli hospital. Ispired by Sigmund Freud's (Viggo Mortensen) work, Jung tries Freud's experimental treatment known as psychoanalysis, or "the talking cure", on 18-year-old Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley). Sabina is a well-educated Russian who speaks fluent German, has been diagnosed with hysteria, and is known to be disruptive and violent. In talks with Jung, she reveals a childhood marred by humiliation and beatings from her authoritarian father. The psychoanalysis uncovers a disturbing sexual element to her dysfunction, which upholds Freud's theories connecting sexuality and emotional disorders.
