The Sessions - Review


I just watched The Sessions and I am really at a loss for words.
This is a movie based on a true story and it was just so ...   Sexual.
I mean, you would expect it to be, since it is based on Mark O'Brien's article, "On Seeing a Sex Surrogate."
Long story short... In this movie, Mark O'Brien was paralyzed since the age of 6 (Polio) and is working on writing a new article about people with disabilities having a sex life...  (That also means him!)  He ends up seeing  a sex therapist to work on his own personal issues...

This was a movie that shows you about love and not settling for anything but what you want.  I would for sure tell you not to watch this movie when you are with kids...   This movie has won awards and has been the talk among many people...  I just hate that I can not say if I liked it or not, since I am still unsure about it... Let me know if you plan on watching this (or if you have watched it) I would love your opinion!

Official Synopsis:

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.

  3. I was curious about it because she's a good actress, but I didn't realize it was so sexual in nature.
