Best Boy

Friday, November 13 - Sunday, November 15, 2009

The Academy Award(R)-winning BEST BOY is a triumphant tale of love, courage and dignity, following filmmaker Ira Wohl and his family as they embark on a mission to enable his developmentally disabled adult cousin Philly to become more independent. Thirty years after its theatrical premiere (and with Philly now in his 80s!), it remains one of the most profoundly touching and life-affirming stories to be captured on film.
