    I would like to know when it will be out also! I have ordered the book and am anxiously waiting to read it. I find the little bit that I know of his story very interesting! I am 35 and had never heard of him until last year when I decided to return to school. My instructor informed us of his story and said that it was a very compelling interesting story, but that it was hard to find anything on. I hope this movie comes out soon, I am interested in MP/DID and I would like this insight into it as well.

    I too would like to know when the film will be released. I worked,as a nurse, in the same unit as Billy resided while he was at the AMHC and am curious to see if my memories match the movie.
