Posted Wed Dec 12, 2012 at 12:12 PM PST by

The Audience Award and Special Jury Prize winner at the Sundance Film Festival has been slated for Blu-ray this February.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is working on 'The Sessions' for a Blu-ray release on February 12.

Paralyzed and confined to an iron lung since childhood, poet-journalist Mark O'Brien (John Hawkes) has overcome adversity time and time again. But now, at age 38, he faces his toughest challenge yet: losing his virginity. With the help of a beautiful therapist (Helen Hunt), a sympathetic priest (William H. Macy), and his own unbridled sense of optimism and humor, Mark embarks on an extraordinary personal journey to discover the wondrous pleasures that make life worth living.

The Blu-ray/Ultraviolet Digital Copy will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: John Hawkes becomes Mark O'Brien; Helen Hunt as the Sex Surrogate; The Women Who Loved Mark O'Brien; Deleted Scenes; Writer/Director Ben Lewin Finds Inspiration; and A Session with the Cast.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
