Movie Reviews & Interviews from Washington

INTERVIEW: John Hawkes of ‘The Sessions’

I, along with some fellow WAFCA members, had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Academy Award nominee John Hawkes (“Winter’s Bone” & “Martha Marcy May Marlene”) about his new film “The Sessions.”  where he stars as a 38-year-old man who was diagnosed with polio at a young age. Not only is the role emotional, Hawkes had to physically alter his entire body during the course of the movie.

Hawkes and I discuss the physicality of the role and which of his previous characters Mark would have the most fun hanging out with. We talk about his roles in Tarantino’s “From Dusk Til Dawn” and HBO’s “Deadwood.”
