The Sessions (John Hawkes) Trailer

The Sessions

THE SESSIONS continues to capture the hearts of festival audiences across the world as it wins the coveted Audience Award at this year’s San Sebastian Film Festival.

Starring Academy Award® Nominee John Hawkes, Academy Award® Nominee William H. Macy and Academy Award® Winner Helen Hunt, the film is based on the true story of California-based journalist and poet Mark O’Brien.

Portrayed by the exceptionally gifted Hawkes – who gives a career-defining performance, O’Brien’s story is the immensely poignant and surprisingly funny tale of a man, paralyzed by polio who – at age 38 – is determined to finally lose his virginity.

Directed by Ben Lewin, The Sessions will open in the UK and Ireland on January 18, 2013, distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

The film receives its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on Tuesday, October 16.
