Wonderful Movie on The Birth of A. A.,
This review is from: My Name Is Bill W. [VHS] (VHS Tape)
As a recovering alcoholic myself, I find this movie an accurate and moving portrayal on the life of Bill Wilson and the early history of Alcoholics Anonymous. James Woods is always a marvelous actor, but here he delivers a tour de force performance as Bill Wilson. Also in the cast is the ever-delightful JoBeth Williams of Big Chill fame. James Garner plays Dr. Bob Smith, who, along with Bill, founded A. A. in 1935. Garner also co-produced the project. This was originally aired on television as a Hallmark Hall Of Fame movie in 1989. Very inspiring!

There are no explosions, car chases or hollywood summer blockbuster anything in this film. Only moving portrayals of the lives of Robert Smith and Bill Wilson. The perfomances and dialogue are sincere and make the story compelling. This movie is exceptional.
