In “The Soloist,” an emotionally soaring drama about the redemptive power of music, journalist Steve Lopez (Oscar® nominee Robert Downey Jr.) discovers Nathaniel Anthony Ayers (Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx), a former classical music prodigy, playing his violin on the streets of L.A. As Lopez endeavors to help the homeless man find his way back, a unique friendship is formed, one that transforms both their lives. “The Soloist” is directed by Joe Wright (Golden Globe winner for Best Drama and Oscar® nominee for Best Picture “Atonement”).

Why we want to see it: Trailers for this movie were being shown around summer 2008 so this movie has been around for awhile. Robert Downey Jr. is a big draw and it looks like he gives another stellar performances. How well Jamie Foxx will do is up for debate. A lot of the story is revealed in the trailer so it will be interesting to find out how the dramatic dilemmas are resolved and if the movie leans toward preaching a lesson.
