DreamWorks Pictures, Universal Pictures | Starring Jamie, Robert Downey Jr. | Rated PG-13
Based on a true story, The Soloist
shows the power of music and friendship. Steve Lopez (Robert Downey Jr.) is a Los Angeles reporter who has lost his passion as a journalist. One day while walking through Skid Row, he notices a homeless man passionately playing a two-stringed violin. He thinks Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx) might make a good story, but soon discovers there is more to Ayers than he originally thought.
As Lopez unfolds how this Julliard-trained child prodigy ended up living on the streets, he sets out to help get Ayers back into music and restore his life-only to find the tables turned on him. This film received the PG-13 rating for mature themes, drug use and language.
