The Sessions

This could have turned out incredibly icky. Think about it for a moment: severely handicapped man goes on a quest to lose his virginity. Hollywood Quirk © could have taken over this screenplay and film and drug it into the ground. Mercifully, and with great élan, I can admit that all of those worries can be put to rest. The Sessions is delicate, humane stuff being explored.

"Credo in un Dio con un senso dell'uomorismo. Lo troverei assolutamente intollerabile non trovare nessuno da incolpare per tutto questo."

A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, somehow, it still slightly rubbed me in the wrong place. First of all, I don't know, it seems that, by now, I have seen too movies dealing with a character with a terrible handicap and, yet, the guy still turned out to be terribly smart, witty... read more

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, somehow, it still slightly rubbed me in the wrong place. First of all, I don't know, it seems that, by now, I have seen too movies dealing with a character with a terrible handicap and, yet, the guy still turned out to be terribly smart, witty and inspirational. Wouldn't it be refreshing to see someone in this situation understandingly dreading his life and acting like a major douchebag with other people?
