I watched this film tonight and liked it very much. It's brilliantly acted by Helen Hunt as a surrogate sex therapist, John Hawkes as a man confined to an iron lung from childhood polio and William H. Macy as an almost too curious Catholic priest. Very funny, moving and ultimately triumphant. It's a dramatization of a biographical piece written by Mark O'Brien. Two tissues. Highly recommended.
