Push-Start Film Review: The Sessions

Push-Start Film Editor Matthew Smith writes about The Sessions; the true story of a man who lives in an iron lung who's wish is to have sex. He writes: "Just the premise of O’Brien’s story is both laugh and tear inducing, and the adaptation of his quest, in the form of Ben Lewin’s wonderfully charming film, is just as much so. It always teeters between comedy and drama, but through a delicate use of both devices is able to land perfectly in the middle. This is, almost wholly, in thanks to another fantastic performance from John Hawkes." (Cinema, The Sessions) 8/10
