Bill / Bill: On His Own


Based on a true story, Mickey Rooney gives an Emmy Award winning performance as Bill, in the highly acclaimed, moving and inspiring story of a 40 year old mentally retarded with an I.Q. of 50, unable to read or write, living in brutal rough and tumble of New York City. He must learn the ways of the city or face going back to the institution in which he spent a better part of his life. Bill kind-hearted, warm and friendly but his childlike innocence gets him in trouble. Barry Morrow (Dennis Quaid), an amateur documentary filmmaker, befriends and enables Bill to learn about family and true friendship.

Bill: On His Own

Its sequel Bill: On His Own, also starring Mickey Rooney, continues the tale of courage, strength and understanding. While working at a local coffee shop, Bill meets Jenny (Helen Hunt), a sociology graduate who wants to use Bill as her "class study." Jenny discovers that Bill's achievements cannot be measured by grades or score, but by his personal growth and his determination to become a regular good man.
