fb.indiewire.com Sex, drama and comedy are familiar ingredients for any number of movies, but those elements have never quite come together as uniquely as they do in "The Sessions." While much of the Oscar talk over at Fox Searchlight has shifted for the time being to "Hitchcock," which recently threw its hat in the ring with a surprise release date announcement, the indie shingle might have a couple of nominations up their sleeve with this Sundance hit.
