About this movie

Academy Award Winner Helen Hunt (Actress, As Good As It Gets, 1997) joins Academy Award Nominees John Hawkes (Supporting Actor, Winter's Bone, 2010) and William H. Macy (Supporting Actor, Fargo, 1996) in this triumphant true story about love, sex, desire...and making every breath count. Paralyzed and confined to an iron lung since childhood, poet-journalist Mark O'Brien (Hawkes) has overcome adversity time and time again. But now, at age 38, he faces his toughest challenge yet: losing his virginity. With the help of a beautiful therapist (Hunt), a sympathetic priest (Macy), and his own unbridled sense of optimism and humor, Mark embarks on an extraordinary personal journey to discover the wondrous pleasures that make life worth living.

Very good movie..very interesting and in my opinion was a excellent movie..however it would have been nice to watch the entire almost half was through then a error about the listening came up and i was unable to watch it was the first time that i had used Google play to rent a movie and will most likely be my last..I ended up going an buying the movie just so i could finish watching it..I tried watching it on my Nexus 7 and Laptop not to mention the desk top and everyone one showed the error message...The movie gets 5 stars however Google Play would get a negative 5...

I love it. We went through it :-D . I do wish that it's PG-13 instead of R, You know, Kim. We are not to spend over the whole time arguing about software kissing scenes! It's made for Helen Hunt's rating, but not for me. Bye!
