Steamy sessions

We watched the wonderful movie, ‘The Sessions’ which reminds me how we never choose to speak about sex and the disabled in the same sentence. 

Sex surrogate was so endearingly played by Helen Hunt. I know i will  love to meet John Hawkes who played the witty and challenging role to the T. 

Also felt more in awe after reading Mark o’ Brien’s true account here on seeing a sex surrogate – mark o’brian

I wanted to know what was all the brouhaha about one of my favourite actress, ‘ Jodie Foster’s Golden Globe speech’. Its was heart warming, honest and eloquent. I was impressed to see tears in the eyes of  every artist sitting around the podium

The Guardian also created a wordle

I had the wonderful experience of watching the movie ” A Single Man” which tells the story of a person who loses his lover in an accident and he is unable to move on with his life anymore.  Apart from the very talented Colin Firth for whom i watched the movie, i was spell bound by the audiovisual explosion created by Tom Ford (famous american fashion designer).  The words exquisite, immaculate, flawless comes to mind after watching this movie about the pain of isolation.

I was happy to hear this news today 

and was also moved to read their love story : Tom Ford and Richard Buckley Forever

I keep listening to the soundtrack of ” A Single Man” and my favorites are

[over radio]
Millicent Weems: What was once before you – an exciting, mysterious future – is now behind you. Lived; understood; disappointing. You realize you are not special. You have struggled into existence, and are now slipping silently out of it. This is everyone’s experience. Every single one. The specifics hardly matter. Everyone’s everyone. So you are Adele, Hazel, Claire, Olive. You are Ellen. All her meager sadnesses are yours; all her loneliness; the gray, straw-like hair; her red raw hands. It’s yours. It is time for you to understand this.
Millicent Weems: Walk.
Millicent Weems: As the people who adore you stop adoring you; as they die; as they move on; as you shed them; as you shed your beauty; your youth; as the world forgets you; as you recognize your transience; as you begin to lose your characteristics one by one; as you learn there is no-one watching you, and there never was, you think only about driving – not coming from any place; not arriving any place. Just driving, counting off time. Now you are here, at 7:43. Now you are here, at 7:44. Now you are…
Millicent Weems: Gone.
