surprising film

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.
