I saw this movie this morning and I have to put the word out on this film.

It is so lovely and heartwarming with such extraordinary acting. John Hawke is a revelation as Mark, a man who is in an Iron lung and wants to lose his virginity as well as to be loved and cared for.

This is the trailer. I really urge anyone to see this film

I've seen it and really want to see it again. I loved the cast and John Hawke's performance is brilliant. It's a shame the film hasn't been recognised more during the awards season.

Just finished watching it myself actually and loved it. Really nice, sweet and heart warming film.

Helen Hunt and John Hawke were both fantastic.

I saw this a few weeks back and I thought the film was fantastic. Shame it has'nt got the award recognition it deserved. It reminded me of another brilliant film, "Inside Im Dancing (Rory O'Shea Was Here)" which I highly recommend !

Saw it yesterday and enjoyed it. There have been some comments in reviews (eg the Evening Standard) that the film takes a few liberties with the facts. On balance I think this does matter as the film is to an extent about the reality of sex rather than the sanitised, glamorous version depicted in most Hollywood films, and inventing/ignoring aspects of Mark's story shouldn't have been necessary.

Excellent acting all round and yes, there should have been more Oscar nominations.

Agreed there are some nice performances from the two central characters but the core of the film never appears to be anything more than a good made-for-tv flick. With a more experienced director on board, the end result could have been something more substantial.

review here.

Saw some clips of Helen Hunt showing her lady garden.

Actually the scenes did seem quite interesting and I was racking my brains to where i'd seen the guy.

After a quick google I found it was Sol Star from Deadwood.

As Good As It Gets is one of my fave movies so I watched this not knowing much about it. I was quite unprepared for Helen's muffin I can tell ya. She is a brave lady for sure.

Muff aside, I thought it was a nice film and the acting was phenomenal. Hawkes impresses me more the more I see him.
