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. Ben Lewinís -The Sessions-, starring John Hawkes in a remarkable performance as OíBrien, is about one disabled manís quest to have relations with a woman. To do so, he hires a professional sex therapist, Cheryl, played by the equally remarkable Helen Hunt. Rounding out the expert cast is William H. Macy as Father Brendan, whose droll counsel is a balm to the deeply religious OíBrien.

One of the few movies to recognize that people with severe physical disabilities have sexual lives, too. 2012 * USA * 98 min * Drama/Comedy * Rated R -strong sexuality including nudity and frank dialogue- MVFF's Managing Director Brian Ditchfield says, -When I saw THE SESSIONS at Sundance I thought, 'this is something our members would love.' Itís funny, poignant, and surprisingly sexy. I love John Hawkes in everything he does, and he gives one of the best performances Iíve seen in a long time.-
