John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, and William H. Macy star in the sensitive, wry, and romantic drama The Sessions, which hits DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday, February 12. And you might be able to enjoy the film in the high definition splendor of Blu-ray -- for free!
First, here is how our own Eric D. Snider began his review: "The Sessions tells a true story about a physically disabled man who enlists a professional sex surrogate to help him through the difficulties, both emotional and logistical, of losing his virginity. That may sound like shameless Oscar-bait -- a perception enhanced by the presence of John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, and William H. Macy -- but in truth the film is simpler than that, more small-scale, with a light and unpretentious sense of humor. Were it not for its frank sex scenes, it could be a TV movie."
