Helen Hunt largely had been off the movie radar for a while when this drama brought attention to her again in a very big way. In part, that was due to her role here ... a sex surrogate hired by a poet (John Hawkes, as the real-life Mark O'Brien) who has lived much of his life in an iron lung, due to polio.
Wanting to experience some of the things he hasn't in life, he contacts the Hunt character. William H. Macy also stars in the drama, which director-screenwriter Ben Lewin based on an article by O'Brien. Adam Arkin and Rhea Perlman also appear. *** (R: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
