Synopsis: A man in an iron lung who wishes to lose his virginity contacts a professional sex surrogate with the help of his therapist and priest.
Release Date: October 26, 2012
Thoughts: For all of you out there that can’t sleep at night because you are wondering what became of Helen Hunt, the trailer for The Sessions should calm you down. I still hold a grudge toward Hunt for winning an Oscar for As Good As It Gets…but time does heal all wounds and I’m almost whole. Hunt teams with character actor John Hawkes in a comedy(?) that is nothing if not original in concept. I’m not sure how many laughs can be mined out of a middle-aged iron lung-ed man who comes to sex surrogate Hunt to lose his virginity…but it’s possible the yuk-yuks could spring naturally from the circumstances.
