The Sessions

“John Hawkes does the kind of acting that awards were invented for in this exhilarating gift of a movie that’s funny, touching and vital.” – Rolling Stone

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. With Golden Globe nominees, John Hawkes and Helen Hunt.
R, 95 mins, US. For mature audiences.

Show & Tell follows the screening on Tuesday, January 8.
