Trailer and Poster for The Sessions

The Sessions - John Hawkes

Winner of the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award (Dramatic) and the Special Jury Prize for Acting (Dramatic – Cast), iTunes Trailers has released a trailer for Ben Lewin’s The Sessions, starring John Hawkes, Helen Hunt and William H. Macy.

Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of California-based journalist and poet Mark O’Brien, The Sessions tells the story of a man confined to an iron lung (John Hawkes) who is determined–at age 38–to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapists (Helen Hunt) and the guidance of his priest (William H. Macy), he sets out to make his dream a reality.

The Sessions is released in the US on 26 October 2012, and 8 November 2012 in Australia from Fox.
