It was so wonderful to see and hear Bill W. in his own words and to know he was just an ordinary man blessed to have a major input in the making of an extraorinary fellowship that has helped millions of hopeless alcoholic men and women the world over.

This movie is a must for any that have found sobriety or are still looking. The movie is not about a man but about a miracle.

This was a documentary; but very real and if you are a member of AA or Al-Anon, I suggest going to see this movie. I have been to Stepping Stones (Bill & Lois' home) so it really made it easier to see in the movie exactly where he or Lois was in relation to their home and when he was sitting up in his office at Wit's End. The movie was real and honest, take the time to go and see this.

If you are an AA member this movie will be of interest. It endeavors to present Bill Wilson's formation of AA [as well as Bob Smith's and Hank Parkhurst's] without conferring "icon" status. If you are not an AA member you will probably be bored to tears.

Bill D...( the "man on the bed" ) was one of the first if not the first man Bill W and Dr. bob visited in the hospital.
He was officially AA # 3 in the big book.
He stayed sober, died with 19 years sobriety!
The fact that this was the first time the 12 step call theory worked and was left out was highly disappointing !!
I am baffled why he was not mentioned ....
Aside from that the movie WAS great. lots of footage Ive never seen and am a very large fan of the history of AA
