'The Sessions' Trailer: An Inspirational True Story of Negotiating Sex from Helen Hunt


Based on the true story of poet Mark O'Brien, Ben Lewin's The Sessions stars the always-entertaining John Hawkes as a 38-year-old whose polio has left him paralyzed and virginal. In the hopes of remedying that second point, Hawkes gets the religious approval of Daryl Hall-haired priest William H. Macy and hires a "sex surrogate" played by Helen Hunt, who is still an actress. See the trailer below, and vicariously live out all the fantasies you once dreamed while lying motionless on a couch watching Mad About You.

Go get 'er, John Hawkes' penis.
