Hi, Bryan Here….
Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of California-based journalist and poet Mark O’Brien, The Sessions tells the story of a man confined to an iron lung who is determined–at age 38–to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapists and the guidance of his priest, he sets out to make his dream a reality. This film screened at Sundance and was a big hit with the crowds. It stars John Hawkes, Alan Arkin, William H. Macy, and Helen Hunt. Ben Lewin served as director.
