The Sessions (Ben Lewin)

This is the true story of Mark O'Brien, a polio victim who decides at the age of 38 that he no longer wishes to be a virgin. We follow the fascinating relationship which evolves between Cheryl Cohen-Greene - a professional sex surrogate - and Mark as she takes him on his journey to manhood.


Starring: John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy, Moon Bloodgood, Annika Marks, Rhea Perlman, Robin Weigert, Rusty Schwimmer, Jarrod Bailey


Why I loved this film: This is a truly brave performance where John Hawkes and Helen Hunt take us on a journey of self-discovery, combining professionalism, playfulness, sensuality, and compassion in a series of sessions that require full nudity.
It is not just about the sex, but rather the human touch, finding oneself through others, with humour in the mix - that is where William H. Macy comes in.
A definite Oscar-worth movie in every way, bound to let your emotions run wild!
