Making the most of its combined star power this international poster for David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method appears to be suffering from an unhealthy case of badly placed actor face syndrome, or King’s Speech disease.
Looking a lot like Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen are popping their heads around from behind the DVD cover of The Duchess there at least cannot be any mistaking how this one is being sold. Shame that Vincent Cassell didn’t get a look in.
The film, adapted from Christopher Hampton’s play, is playing at Venice next month and has a synopsis which looks something like this,
For his third consecutive collaboration with Viggo Mortensen, David Cronenberg adapts Christopher Hampton’s 2002 stage play concerning the turbulent relationship between Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and his mentor Sigmund Freud (Mortensen) as they struggle to treat a troubled patient (Kiera Knightley).
Here’s your facey poster,
Big thanks and hurrah to IMPA.
