In 'A Dangerous Method,' Kiera Knightley plays Sabina Spielrein, the tortured Russian patient of Dr. Carl Jung who entered an illicit affair with her doctor. She later became an analyst herself.
Michael Fassbender plays Jung, while Vigo Mortensen plays Freud, who comes down on Jung for the affair.
The film is based on a London play called 'The Talking Cure,' one of a number of stage productions about the drama. The film is scheduled for release in November of this year; some are saying Knightley may get an Oscar nomination.
In 2005, the documentary, 'Ich hie Sabina Spielrein,' or, 'My Name Was Sabina Spielrein,' was released, based on documents found in a box of her belongings in 1977.
