"The Sessions" at the Guild 45th Theater (this is not a free showing)

  • November 11, 2012 · 4:30 PM
  • Guild 45th

We will be attending the 4:40 showing of the much heralded "The Sessions" at the Guild 45th Theater in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood. This is not a free admission showing; everyone pays to get in.

Here is a description of The Sessions that appeared in Variety:

A film of tenderness and humor married to the unlikeliest of subjects, "The Sessions" presents the story of poet and polio survivor Mark O'Brien, who left behind an oeuvre of life-affirming writing despite his condition...writer-director Ben Lewin's film focuses on perhaps the most unusual chapter of O'Brien's life, in which the iron lung-bound writer (here played by John Hawkes) arranges to lose his virginity with the help of a sex therapist (Helen Hunt). Careful treatment makes for an exceptional, expertly acted crowd-pleaser.

Here is the link to the review in Variety:

“The Sessions” has a 93% rating on rottentomatoes.com; here is link that that web site where you can read or scan the reviews to determine if this film is for you.

Tomatometer – The Sessions

“The Sessions” won the Audience Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Here is what is reported at wikipedia.com: The Sessions was considered one of the 2012 Sundance breakout hits. John Hawkes received two prolonged standing ovations at the film's screening. It was praised by critics at the festival as accessible, enjoyable, and light-hearted.”

Meet me at the lobby of the Guild 45th no later than 4:25 (i.e., 15 minutes prior to show time) . I am an Asian male who wears glasses and will probably be wearing a hat of some type (khaki beret, black rain hat, multi-color African cap). My cell phone,[masked], will be on until 4:40. I might bring a small blue and white flag that says "2010 Windermere Cup" to distinguish the Seattle Cinema Club from other groups that might be attending this showing.

At the conclusion of the film (this means after all of the credits have been shown) there will be an optional food and beverage stop at a nearby cafe or restaurant. Meet me outside the theater if it is not raining, and in the lobby if it is raining.
