Philip Wohl in Best Man

Best Man

1997 NR

It's been 20 years since documentarian Ira Wohl trained his cameras on his mentally retarded cousin "Philly" as he struggled to carve out some independence from his sequestered life in his parents' home. Philly, now in his late sixties, resides in a group home in Queens, New York, where he takes classes and is loved by family and friends. Now, he travels to Los Angeles to visit his cousin Ira and prepare for his bar mitzvah.
