Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of California-based journalist and poet Mark O'Brien, The Sessions tells the story of a man (John Hawkes ) 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. We have four photos from the movie, which recently gained a lot of buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival. Take a look at John Hawkes and Helen Hunt as they work through this unique situation.
The Sessions was released October 19th, 2012 and stars John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy, Moon Bloodgood, Annika Marks, Adam Arkin, Rhea Perlman, W. Earl Brown. The film is directed by Ben Lewin.
