Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 01/25/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]f the humor draws them in, it's the emotional honesty that will get people talking about THE SURROGATE....Central to Lewin's achievement is a towering performance from John Hawkes..."
Hollywood Reporter - 01/23/2012
"[S]urprisingly accessible and emotionally effective....[A] well-acted and constructed film..."
Wall Street Journal - 10/18/2012
"[Hawkes delivers] an extraordinary performance, from the pinched voice conveying anxiety with humor to the twisted posture that can express, almost simultaneously, the agony of severe disability and the ecstasy of human contact."
Total Film - 01/31/2013
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]errific though Hawkes is, he's flanked by two equally impressive performers."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2013
"[Hunt] is so good here it's almost a rediscovery....[An] undeniably endearing piece..."

Product Description:

A 38-year-old man who has spent most of his life in an iron lung enlists the help of a sexual surrogate in order to lose his virginity in this drama starring Oscar-nominated actor John Hawkes and inspired by the life of poet/journalist Mark O'Brien. With the support of an unconventional priest (William H. Macy) and a devoted team of caretakers, the virginal writer hires a compassionate sex surrogate (Helen Hunt), who finds her life profoundly transformed by their tender sessions.
