Hallmark Film Productions is releasing a new movie about two former Katonah residents who were pioneers in treating alcohol abuse.

The film, which is being shown at 9 p.m. on CBS on Sunday, April 25, focuses on the life of Lois and Bill Wilson, according to Stepping Stones Foundation, the museum housed in the Wilsons’ former Katonah home.

Bill Wilson co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous while Lois helped start Al-Anon, a self-help group for families coping with an alcoholic relative. Bill Wilson lived in the Katonah home at 62 Oak Road until his death in 1971. Lois lived there until she died in 1988.

The movie, “When Love is Not Enough: the Lois Wilson Story” stars Winona Ryder as Lois Wilson and Barry Pepper as Bill Wilson.
