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.

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

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.

Fantastic movie. Has perfect pitch on a subject that could easily been either maudlin or prurient. Great writing. Hawkes, Helen Hunt and the priest(forgot his name) were all just wonderful. Very moving. An affirmation of life.
