THE SOLOIST (2009 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

The Soloist—completely worth a watch—tells about musical genius and how genius is sometimes lost forever to our world when that genius lives too long with out secure and supportive environments. Robert Downey, Jr. and Jamie Foxx team to reveal the brutality of street life. Great to good acting. Robert Downey Jr., as usual, performs within the realms of superbly well-done. Jamie Foxx, as usual, performs with power but sometimes fails to fully realize that power.

Storyline

Robert Downey, Jr.) endeavors to bring a homeless man’s musical skills to the professional world.
