With the blessing of an unusual priest and support from enlightened caregivers, the poignantly optimistic and always droll O’Brien swallows his fear and hires a sex surrogate. What transpires over a handful of sessions transforms them both.

REVIEWS The Sessions - Vulnerable, intimate & beautifully sincere
