Coming out on Blu-ray and DVD on February 12, THE SESSIONS is without doubt one of the best and most inspiring films of the year, starring ACADEMY AWARD® Winner Helen Hunt alongside ACADEMY AWARD® Nominees John Hawkes and William H. Macy.
Based on the true story of Bay Area poet Mark O’Brien, confined to an iron lung and confirmed in his faith, O’Brien seeks both his priest’s permission and his own confidence in looking to lose his virginity at age 38, eventually experimenting with a sex surrogate to achieve the best version of himself.
We sat down with the writer/director Ben Lewin, as well as John Hawkes and William H. “Bill” Macy at the Sundance Film Festival when the film was still called “The Surrogate” and had JUST received its distribution offer from Fox Searchlight, so check out the interview below, and comment on this post for your chance to win!
