Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of California-based journalist and poet Mark O'Brien, The Sessions tells the story of a man (John Hawkes ) 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. We have four photos from the movie, which recently gained a lot of buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival. Take a look at John Hawkes and Helen Hunt as they work through this unique situation.
