Excellent acting, touching and surprisingly funny plus Helen Hunt looks great!

John Hawkes should get an Oscar nomination by lying down on the job. He came a long way from playing the bad guy in "Winter's Bone." Hawkes played Journalist Mark O'Brain who is confined to an Iron Lung. He wanted to lose his virginity so he hireed a therapeutic sex surfrogate played by Helen Hunt, who did her best work in years. probaby another Oscar nomination. Whe it comes to talking about sex, i picked this movie over "Hope Springs" anyday.
