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.

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.

Great true story about overcoming obstacles. John Hawkes creates an Oscar caliber performance. Helen Hunt is good also.
This movie is about sex and connection and is for thoughtful adults.

What a beautifufl and moving story The two leads are brilliant in their roles. So emtionally involving. The real Mark O'Brien must have been an amazing person to know. Lots of humor as well.

Had great press and previews. Very dissapointing. I would give it a 65 on RT.
1. No character development, no idea why Helen Hunt feels as she does, nor do we get any backstory of the life of JOhn Hawkes. Or how does JOhn Hawkes support himself ?
2. Its a touching story but very shallow.
No idea what the big whoop is with this movie.
