Rate this:
Lois met and fell in love with Bill Wilson, and when Bill returned from World War I, they married. Despite concerns over Bill's drinking, Lois believed he was destined for greatness. Bill's drinking spiraled out of control and soon his job, their home, even their dreams were gone. When Bill attained sobriety, he poured his time and energy into helping other drunks, which led to the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous. Frustrated that Lois was not acknowledged for her helping Bill, she drew on her own experience as the wife of a drunk and began Al-Anon.

This is very tough film to watch, but it gives you some idea about what it could be like for the wife or husband of an alcoholic! The performances of the actors were excellent. You almost think the husband must really be drunk. This movie has real depth and an amazing message of love, loss, loyalty and forgiveness.

I enjoyed this biography DVD. It is good for children to watch. It shows how difficult it is to live with an alcoholic & why a person should not drink liquor. Well acted. Strong story.

Another cliche ridden movie about peoples poor choices that are driven by wishful thinking.

Every silly cliche of the worst chickflicks. After 15 minutes I just could not stand it any more.... Awful.

I found the history of Alcoholics Anonymous in this film very interesting. It definitely shows the hardship of living with an alcoholic.
