The first trailer for David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method has landed online.
Based on the 2002 play The Talking Cure , the film stars Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud and Michael Fassbender as Karl Jung.
As WWI appears on the horizon, the two men find themselves divided by the case of Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), a troubled Russian woman who comes between them and their methods.
With Knightley taking on a foreign accent, Fassbender sporting a 'tache and Mortensen all but unrecognisable as Freud, Method seems to be a showcase for some Very Serious Acting.
Happily, it looks like riveting stuff, featuring exquisite period detail and explosive drama aplenty.
Check out the trailer below…
A Dangerous Method opens 10 February 2012.
