2012 Year in Review: Favorite Male Movie Performances
John Hawkes, The Sessions
Based on the widely read article by Mark O’Brien, The Sessions tells the story of a man paralyzed by polio who employs a sex surrogate to take his virginity. The tragic, funny, strange and oddly moving film features a performance by John Hawkes that’s sincere and honest with neither judgment nor sentimentality. It’s a finely balanced turn that’s certain to gain Hawkes some attention come awards season.
