Personal Quote:

[on 'The Sessions'] The reason I wanted to tell the story is primarily because it was a good story. [Finding it was] a total accident, when I was surfing the Internet for all the wrong reasons. It was a burning bush moment, of which I've had very few. I thought that if I was emotionally affected, someone else would be as well.

Trivia:

As of 2013, has directed 1 Academy Award-nominated performance: Helen Hunt (Best Supporting Actress The Sessions (2012)). See more »
