William G. Wilson is the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Interviews and rare archival material reveal how a hopeless drunk found a way out of his own addiction and then forged a path for countless others to follow. With Bill as its driving force, A.A. grew from a handful of men to over two million men and women-a success that made him an icon within A.A., but also an alcoholic unable to be a member of the very society he had created. A reluctant hero, Bill Wilson lived a life of sacrifice and left a legacy that continues all around the world. English. Unrated. 104 mins. DVD.
