“The Sessions” was one of the best received movies at this year’s Sundance Film Festival — then titled “The Surrogate” — and is now the first film of the year to garner notable Oscar buzz.

Helen Hunt makes perhaps her boldest move on the big screen yet, playing a sex therapist — a hands on sex therapist called a surrogate. Hunt hasn’t starred in a film that has received such critical acclaim since her 1997 Oscar-winning performance in “As Good As It Gets.”
