The Sessions

7 years, 9 months ago at Feb 12 21:03
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.

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out.

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?
