A true story about the meaning of passion and true love. Because of the writing and sensitivit;y of the story, the nudity seems incidental.

I heard about this small indy-film but had no idea how good it would be. John Hawkes plays his part perfectly as a disabled man on a quest to get laid. With seemingly insurmountable odds to overcome just to get by, this guy showed his true spirit and how no matter how bad the situation there is a way to get what you want in the end. With each caretaker providing a little more insight into his remarkable life, you will no doubt laugh and cry within minutes. Even though it's a little short, about 90 minutes, there is more than enough time to cover how this guy gets to live his life the way he wants. It's a refreshing movie and will make you walk out of this movie thinking twice about complaining of that back pain or knee pain. A must see if you are into dramatic films based on a true story

This movie was breathtakingly honest from start to finish. The script was very straight-forward, subtle, touching and based on a true story. I loved the wit and courage of the main character, the tenderness and humanity of the Helen Hunt's character and the vulnerability and nakedness of the
story. It is right out there in your face with nudity, sensuality and love of the most touching kind.
Do not miss this movie! I loved it.

While parts of this movie were very interesting and moving the sex scenes in it were totally awkward. Not to mention I didn't realize until the end that I was in the movie with 6 other people. All of them over the age of 65. The experience just was kind of strange. Everything prior to the session I enjoyed. I also really liked the main character. But I would not recommend this movie to anyone else to go and see.

When it was first suggested by one of our group of 20 that we go see a movie about a man who lived his life in an iron lung who is a guilt ridden Catholic who sees a sex therapist, I thought it was a joke. As other members of our movie group chimed in that they had heard it was a great movie, and I realized that I would be going to see this movie with the others, I started planning a way to discreetly walk out and sneak into another movie.
But I stayed put, enthralled, for the whole movie (and even though the credits cause I didn't want it to be over, its one of those), From the opening scene (funny and interesting) until the very end, I loved this movie. We all did. It is hard to explain why. But we left feeling really good about life and I woke up thinking about things I should think about more often. Like gratitude.
