The Sessions Review: Heartfelt and Humorous

by at .

The opening scenes of The Sessions set the stage for the gloriously humanity-affirming story that is the tale of Mark O’Brien’s life. Stricken with polio, he rides through a Bay Area university campus strapped to his electric-powered portable gurney. Proof of the film’s heavy subject meets indelible humor is showcased when, moments later, John Hawkes as O’Brien explains why he no longer has the engine-powered contraption that moves him around. “I honestly couldn’t see where I was going."
