This could have turned out incredibly icky. Think about it for a moment: severely handicapped man goes on a quest to lose his virginity.

The Sessions is delicate, humane stuff being explored.

"11.02.2013 "I believe in a God with a sense of humor. I would find it absolutely intolerable not to be to able blame someone for all this." I found this movie kind of boring. All the performances were great, and the story was sweet, but i didn't think it was interesting enough for a whole movie. John Hawkes was snubbed at the academy Awards again here. He is definitely the highlight of the film. Helen Hunt, who i usually can't stand, was also good. I think if anyone of them deserved a nominati"

2012- Best to Worst (56 movies items)

"I found this movie on Netflix not knowing too much about it and I was glad I found out about it. It was well-written and had great performances from everyone. I am also one of those people who thought John Hawkes was snubbed by The Oscars. This was an amazing movie that ended before I knew it."

" Mark O'Brien, a 36-year-old poet and journalist who uses iron lung, decides he no longer wishes to be a virgin. With the help of his therapist and the guidance of his priest, he contacts a professional sex surrogate to take him on a journey to manhood. John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy, and Moon Bloodgood lead the cast in this story of a late bloomer coming of age type of film. I think this story was really interesting and erotic, but at the same time it was tragic. The acting was real"

"20.2. Ja matka jatkuu... älkää kysykö miten, kysykää miksi. Seuraavana vuorossa pari näyttelijäsuoritusta, joita Academy on päättänyt kunnioittaa ehdokkuudella. Näissä maistuu varmasti elämä ja omenapiirakka."
