Currently playing in limited release to almost universally favorable reviews, THE SESSIONS is inspired by the autobiographical writings of journalist MARK O’BRIEN and tells the touching and ultimately optimistic story of his attempts, despite spending most of his life in an iron-lung, to lose his virginity via the assistance of a sex surrogate. Written and directed by BEN LEWIN, the film features standout performances by JOHN HAWKES and HELEN HUNT as well as strong support from WILLIAM H. MACY, MOON BLOODGOOD, ADAM ARKIN and RHEA PERLMAN.
As the tireless sex-worker determined to complete her assignment, HELEN HUNT fearlessly embraces her role. During our recent interview, she talked about the challenge of taking on this real-life character. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
