“The Sessions” set to open one week earlier than expected – OSCARS


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ben Lewin’s “The Sessions” has been pleasing crowds since the Sundance Film Festival, where it took home the Audience Award and a Special Jury Prize, then competed for the fest’s Grand Jury Prize. After a strong showing at the Toronto International Film Festival, “Sessions” has decided to get in front of mainstream crowds a week earlier than planned.

Lewin’s film, about a handicapped man (John Hawkes) hoping to lose his virginity to a sex therapist (Helen Hunt), will now open in limited release on Oct. 19 – one week earlier than the announced Oct. 26 date, Deadline reports. This will give the film a limited-release debut to continue building on the buzz before it finally goes wide in most major markets.

Any why not? The film’s finished, and has been collecting positive reviews for the honest portrayal of sexual curiosity. Hawkes and Hunt each give stellar performances in difficult roles, while William H. Macy brings levity and insight as Hawkes’ parish priest, a soundboard for the man’s complicated emotional journey.

Here’s the latest trailer for “The Session,” Fox Searchlight’s main Oscar player which is expected to score nominations is several key categories. Are you happy you can watch it a week earlier? Let us know below:
