John Hawkes will win the Oscar for best actor for playing a character similar to the one played by Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot (for which he won an Oscar.) William H. Macy is fun to watch in whatever he does. Helen Hunt is always monotone to me, but people like fearless, and in this movie she is. Very enjoyable movie. Smart screenplay.

The is a beautiful but, emotionally draining film.
It deals with very real, very difficult topics of the human existence and does so in a profound way. It is truly a must-see for emotionally mature individuals and couples.

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.

This movie had more nudity than ever, however, it was done in such good taste that it did not detract from the story line, a unique opportunity to see and understand the terrible results of the polio epidemic. Thank God for the Salk and Sabine vaccines. A wonderful movie.

The story line is fascinating, and most people who have read the reviews will know what it's about. What was strnage was the constant nudity of Helen Hunt. Some reviews have said, "At least it was relevant." Really? I thought the story line was about the sexual issues of the MALE character. Yes, nudity was relevant here, but why was it relevant only for Helen's character? I don't recall a single shot of John's private parts. It always fascinates me when actors say they get naked as part of the "art" of their movie, yet it's almost always the female actors who are the ones who get naked. And even though nudity was relevant here, did we really need to see so many shots of Helen's landing strip?
