The trailer is a real eye-roller, but The Sessions is already generating Oscar buzz according to trustworthy studio publicists and trade magazines. Anyway, we have 100 passes to attend an advance screening of the film that’s happening this Thursday (9/27) at the Neshaminy AMC. Just go to http://www.gofobo.com/rsvp and enter the code CINEAB4A. It’s that easy.
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) who lived most of his life in an iron lung who is determined – at age 38 - to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapist (Helen Hunt) and the guidance of his priest (William H. Macy), he sets out to make his dream a reality.
