Torrent description

** WINNER ** 1979 Oscar for Best Documentary
** WINNER ** 1980 New York Film Critics Award
** WINNER ** Toranto International Film Festival

"Don't Miss it!" - Rodger Ebert

"A celebration of lovng kindness"
- Los Angles Times

" A revitalializing experience"

"Philly is a man who inspires affection"
- New York Times

Produced and directed by Ira Wohl, ''Best Boy'' won 15 awards and citations, including those of the New York Film Critics Circle, the Christophers and the National Board of Review. The film had its premiere at the New York Film Festival in 1979.

Director Ira Wohl took on this personally courageous project that may ultimately help other people who live under the same circumstances as Wohl's aunt, uncle, and their mentally handicapped son Philly. When Wohl started filming this documentary, Philly was entering his fifties, and his parents were not going to live forever. They had always taken care of Philly but Wohl intervenes not only with the eye of his camera, but with his encouragement to get Philly living on his own. The process of his aunt and uncle coming to terms with giving up their only remaining son is enlightening and moving, as are the changes Philly goes through himself.

One of the most profoundly moving documentaries, it holds up better today, honed with DVD technology, than when it was originally released on grainy, often dark film stock. There are certain remarkably powerful touchpoints in this often funny, always insightful narrative.

Ira Wohl, whose career has been in psychology as much or more than film, recorded the progression of his cousin Philly – a retarded adult – and Philly’s parents, after he urged them to make their 50-year-old son more independent in light of their encroaching old age. Shot over a period of four years, we are shown a sweet, upbeat, but barely social Philly, his kind but forlorn mother, Pearl, and his quiet, stoic and ailing father, Max, cooped up in their claustrophobic, simple lodgings, as well as Philly’s efforts to learn how to do more things by going to special school and camp. The family takes Philly to see a performance of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF on Broadway, in which there are songs he loved to attempt to sing. Zero Mostel welcomes Philly backstage and even sings with him.
