When Love is Not Enough: First Look

Tuesday, Nov 17, 2009

This is your first look at Winona Ryder on the set of the TV movie When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story.

Currently shooting in Toronto, the CBS/Hallmark Hall of Fame drama tells the true story of the troubled but enduring love between Lois Wilson, co-founder of Al-Anon, and her alcoholic husband Bill, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Ryder, a two-time Academy Award nominee, plays the title character and Canadian actor Barry Pepper plays her husband. The story, which spans three decades, is based on the biography by William G. Borchert.

Lois married Bill in 1918 and, following his stint in WWI, they settled in New York City where she worked as an occupational therapist and he thrived as a securities analyst. Their seemingly idyllic life together started to come apart due to Bill’s drinking problem. Bill went on to co-found AA with Dr. Bob Smith and Lois later helped to create Al-Anon – a program for the loved ones of alcoholics.

Thanks to websites Pop Goes the News and CanadianTabloid.com for the pictures, and Chris for the heads up. I’m currently working on find more pictures untagged. Wish me luck. 🙂

    “.. Seven years ago she was found guilty of vandalism and theft in connection with shoplifting charges in 2001 and sentenced to 480 hours of community service, $3700 in fines and $6355 in restitution….”

    Even with the history of shoplifting!!
    But enoug!!!!
    You are pathetic.

  3. Well, as much as I like her, when you do something as stupid as she did there’s a prize to be paid. Still love her though.

    She looks really pretty, cuteness personified.

  4. He paid a disproportionate price.

    To blame for the scandalous decision of OJ Simpson.

    Not forget the whole story!!

  5. Yes, it’s like stabbing me a million times! She faced it and paid the consequences… This is the first one she made a mistake in public’s eyes but they can’t get over it! One mistake and it wrapped everything GOOD she did and is still doing.

  6. Today I saw the video of shoplifting.
    Looked like a frightened fawn.
    If I were them, I helped.
    Now arrested me too!
