Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Sessions

John Hawkes and Helen Hunt give tremendous performances in an otherwise rather mundane film about a man left paralyzed by polio as a child, who seeks out a sex therapist to help him realize his dream of losing his virginity. Some nice character moments, especially with Hawkes and Hunt, but the film around them feels a bit too schematic and and thinly constructed.
