Release Date:February 12,2013
An excellently acted film that embraces life and ultimately tells you a story you haven't seen before, The Sessions is one of our surprise favorite films from last year. John Hawkes (as is becoming the norm) is flat-out amazing - it is a travesty that he wasn't nominated for an Oscar. The blu-ray and its features are nothing special but the movie is. Check it out!
ACADEMY AWARD® Winner Helen Hunt* joins ACADEMY AWARD® Nominees John Hawkes** and William H. Macy*** in this triumphant true story about love, sex, desire...and making every breath count.
Paralyzed and confined to an iron lung since childhood, poet-journalist Mark O’Brien (Hawkes) has overcome adversity time and time again. But now, at age 38, he faces his toughest challenge yet: losing his virginity. With the help of a beautiful therapist (Hunt), a sympathetic priest (Macy), and his own unbridled sense of optimism and humor, Mark embarks on an extraordinary personal journey to discover the wondrous pleasures that make life worth living.
