A 38-year-old man who has spent most of his life in an iron lung enlists the help of a sexual surrogate in order to lose his virginity in "The Sessions," a drama starring Oscar-nominated actor John Hawkes and inspired by the life of poet/journalist Mark O'Brien.

With the support of an unconventional priest (William H. Macy) and a devoted team of caretakers, the virginal writer hires a compassionate sex surrogate (Helen Hunt), who finds her life profoundly transformed by their tender sessions.

"The Sessions," written and directed by Ben Lewin, is a film that will touch your heart. It will make you laugh, cry and definitely inspire you.

Hunt was nominated for an Academy Award for her role. She's up for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role.
