The Soloist
While looking for a story to write, LA Times reporter Steve Lopez (Robert Downey Jr.) stumbles across Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx), a schizophrenic and homeless musical virtuoso. Nathaniel becomes the focus of several of Steve’s stories, marveling at how such a talented individual ended up on the streets. Before long the two are friends, Steve determined to help Nathaniel reach his potential in life, but is that potential actually attainable;  and, is that what Nathaniel wants? Based on a true compelling story, the characters really give you something to sink your teeth into. And, acting gold from Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx is brilliant, it’s almost as if these two can do no wrong. Perhaps a good date movie, and worth seeing. The Soloist is rated PG-13.
