The Sessions – review
He has feeling all over his body. He has an instinct his time is running out. He would like to experience sexual intercourse with a woman at least once before he dies. At a time when sex is as common in the movies as automobiles, his need and his attempt to fulfill it requires an awesome dedication.
On Friday, however, Hunt returns to the critical forefront with The Sessions , the sexually frank dramatic comedy and Sundance darling that has catapulted her into early Oscar discussions. Written and directed by Ben Lewin, the film stars Hunt as a sex surrogate who helps a paralyzed poet John Hawke lose his virginity. Last week, we met with Hunt in Beverly Hills and heard about her research with Cohen Greene, her goal for The Sessions , and the mental strategy that, she says, every good actor takes. Then I read the script, and you probably know—writing about movies—how few good stories there are.
