New Film, A Dangerous Method, Causes Stir

As a psychology nerd, I'm excited about this film. It's based on the true story of Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, and his patient Sabina Spielrein. Jung and Sabina begin a sexual relationship, and the film centers around the tension between Freud and Jung. It's a fascinating story. The film's causing some stir for a scene where Jung played by Michael Fassbender spanks Sabina played by Keira Knightley. Why is that necessary? Are the minds behind the film over-sexualizing Keira so more people will watch?
