Good story, but...

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?

Awkward

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.

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.

Honest, honest movie

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.

The Sessions

This had the potential to be a wonderful story and with skillful acting instead of repeated nudity of a very nice looking Hunt, I would have rated higher. Little is left to the imagination of creativity. I'm sorry, but I would be embarrassed to recommend this to my friends. VERY awkward. Felt like I was at a soft core porno. As wonderful as John Hawkes portrayed his character, he was overshadowed with mediocrity. If you can't act, get naked. Forest Gump, House of the Flying Daggers, heck, even soaps portray sexuality with much more class and intimacy. A lot to be said for leaving the act to our imagination. We could of figured it out. Don't you think? Very Poor presentation.
