Release date: unknown at this point.

It won the Audience Award at Sundance.

100% (9 for 9) on RT so far, but most major critics haven't weighed in yet.

Here is what the guys over at The High Definite said:

We also saw The Sessions at Sundance this year, under its original title The Surrogate. It was a big buzz hit at that festival, picking up the Audience Award and an acquisition from Fox Searchlight, who are holding it for the fall with an eye on Oscar recognition for both the picture and its terrific cast. The trailer doesn’t quite put across the film’s unique style, which keeps it from becoming what it could have so easily been: a maudlin flimflam about the power of positive thinking and human contact, or a teary examination of polio from a movie-of-the-week perspective. It’s a movie grounded by its candor and wit — and while some of that is on display here, trust us that the movie is better than it looks.

Spoken like someone who's never been laid.

I love me some Helen Hunt. :hump: Then again, my wife's been told more than once she looks like her so there may be other factors at play there.

Saw this earlier today. Good movie, no doubt, and Hawkes gives a fantastic performance. Left the theatre feeling kind of down for the rest of the day though. 8.0/10

I'd fuck Helen Hunt and make her call me Paul Reiser the whole time.

So true LFMAO

Worth renting at Netflix.

Wish Helen did all this nudity during her Twister phase but not bad considering she is older now.

The interaction with William Macy as the priest were some of the funniest scenes in the movie.

For me, this was the funniest movie of 2012 hands down.
