Film Description ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy, Moon Bloodgood
A paralysed journalist yearns to lose his virginity in this funny, frank and life-affirming tale. An award-winning hit at Sundance 2012, 'The Sessions' is based on the true story of poet and journalist Mark O'Brien. A man of sharp wit and compassionate humour, O'Brien (John Hawkes) is forced to cope with restricted mobility following an attack of polio in childhood. However, like any able-bodied man, he wishes to experience sexual pleasure and decides to hire a 'sex surrogate' in order to lose his virginity. After consulting with his priest (William H. Macy), O'Brien hires Cheryl (Helen Hunt) to be his surrogate. Despite the unusual and challenging circumstances, a relationship develops between the two of them. Applauded for its honest, humorous approach to the difficulties O'Brien faced in life, 'The Sessions' features winning central performances and is a heart-warming exploration of love in the face of adversity.
If you have a Cineworld Unlimited card you need to show this at the box office to collect a free ticket. Otherwise please just buy your own ticket in the normal way (if you book online in advance you may be able to get a 10% discount, eg £11.70 instead of £13). Please note extra charge for 3D movies and also for 3D glasses. If you own them please bring them with you. Details of charges on website below.
London Cinema Meetup hosts a lot of events at Cineworld cinemas (usually for seeing the latest releases, most commonly in the West End). If you like watching films regularly (more than once a month) it might be cheaper to buy a Cineworld Unlimited card for £17.99 a month - this allows you to watch as many films as you like at Cineworld cinemas (including the ones we normally use in the West End, in Shaftesbury Avenue or in Haymarket). It also gives you a 10% discount off food and drink bought in the cinemas, and some local discount offers too. There is a cheaper version of the card for £14.99, but this is not valid for the Cineworld cinemas in the West End. Currently there is an offer of getting 'one free month' if you sign up using the promotion code below:
This code has to be entered in the payments section under "promotions".
