"BEST BOY"




"The second installment in the 'Best Boy' trilogy, 'Best Man,' was released in 1997, twenty years after Best Boy. Best Man picks up the thread of Philly's story when he is 70 years old and shows how he has not only survived, but thrived in the independent environment he found at the end of Best Boy. Still living in the same group home, Philly is supported by the staff there, the staff at his day center, the friends with whom he now lives, and the ongoing love he receives from his sister, Frances. Whether it be at his day center, in his Jewish cultural activities or at inter-group-home dances and events, it is also clear that his social life and interpersonal relationships have improved greatly."source:pbs.org/thoushalthonor
