deadline.com Fox Searchlight brought its Sundance pickup and Oscar hopeful, The Sessions, to the Toronto International Film Festival Sunday to kick-start the film’s October launch (now set for October 26 but very possibly moving up a week to the 19th). It’s been 8 months since Sundance when the film debuted under the title The Surrogate and immediately sparked early 2012 awards talk, particularly for the performances of John Hawkes and Helen Hunt.
