The Sessions

'The Sessions', I understand is taken from the memoirs of an actual childhood victim of polio. Confined as an adult to twenty-four care and desperately wanting to experience the intimacy of sexual as well as loving relations, he secures the services of a sexual surrogate. The experience profoundly affects them both.

This is an honest account of a sensitive issue tempered with humour mostly in the man's dealings with his Priest.

John Hawkes is disarmingly moving in his search for intimacy. Helen Hunt is the no nonsense surrogate.
