'The Sessions' -- out now in limited release -- is based on the true story of poet, journalist and cripple Marc O'Brien, a man confined to an iron lung for most of his life who seeks out the help of a sex surrogate to experience the act for the first time.

Based on a true story of a man stricken with polio, confined to an iron lung and who is determined - at age 38 - to lose his virginity. 'The Sessions' takes a frank approach to disability and sexuality that is touching, poignant and wise and is a lead contender for the upcoming Oscar season.
