139. The Sessions (B+)

Another biopic focusing on a brief period in the subject's life, an increasingly popular form. The lead performances by John Hawkes and Helen Hunt are brilliant, particularly Hawkes, in an uncanny depiction of an almost completely paralyzed man. The movie itself is very light on plot or conflict, which seems true to life -- there's no villain or final obstacle here. It's largely observational. Not a great movie, but a good one, with great acting.
