What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Ann Hornaday Singular take on poet's sexual awaking.
Todd McCarthy One man's lust for life.
Rayy Greene Everything The Sessions touches becomes its own, and is made new.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The Sessions isn't really about sex at all. It is about two people who can be of comfort to each other, and about the kindness that forms between them. This film rebukes and corrects countless brainless and cheap sex scenes in other movies. It's a reminder that we must be kind to one another.
James Berardinelli The Sessions provides a window into an aspect of the world from which most viewers are insulated. It affirms truths that should be self-evident about the concept of humanity being more a state of mind than body, but that the needs of the body cannot be ignored.
Peter Travers Just see it. This movie will take a piece out of you.
Tomatometer Tender, funny, and touching, The Sessions provides an acting showcase for its talented stars and proves it's possible for Hollywood to produce a grown-up movie about sex.
