With the help of his therapist and the guidance of his priest, he sets out to make his  dream a reality.(Read Review)

Danish Aslam recommends 'The Sessions' for the steller performances by the lead cast. “The best performance by John Hawkes ever, easily one of the best performances this year and a shame that he's not even nominated. Ditto for Helen Hunt. And a hauntingly sensitive and yet funny look at a topic (sex therapy for a virgin living in an Iron Lung) that I could never imagine being handled so adeptly. One of the best movies I've seen in the last few years. Highly recommended.”
