I did not begin watching this movie with honourable intentions. While my primary goal was satisfied reasonably early, I did end up watching the rest of the film. The Sessions had many of the qualities required to become this decade's My Left Foot or Le scaphandre et le papillon. However, there really wasn't enough conflict in the script for this to happen. Helen Hunt was quite brilliant. However, the rest of the cast, while competent, did not really hit the upper percentiles. Even the main character—the paraplegic—while convincing and committed, came across as a li'l monotonous. I also found William H. Macy's role particularly pointless.
Worth watching for a "different" tale; a bonus star for Helen.
