Variety reports that Winona Ryder and Barry Pepper are going to star in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie “When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story”.

This television movie will begin shooting this week in Toronto. The show itself is going to run later this season on CBS.

When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story will tell the true story of Lois Wilson, she was the co-founder of Al-Anon. It will also look into her relationship with her alcoholic husband Bill Wilson. He was one of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous.

The couple lived a lavish lifestyle in the 1920s, but Bill’s drinking eventually caused them both problems. Eventually, Wilson became sober — but Lois continued to have a hard time due to his alcoholism. Al-Anon was started in 1951 to aid people whose “loved ones battle addiction.”

When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story is going to be based on the book by William Borchert. He also wrote the screenplay with Camille Thomasson.

    Pepper had some good supporting roles in Private Ryan and Green Mile.

    Now fans in NYC (Black Swan) and Toronto have to be on alert for pictures….(-;

    Second thought: If she starts filming this week it could only mean that Black Swan will start after that….
