On this Friday, April 24, 2009, the theatrical film we chose for the club members to see opened up city and county wide. This film is already stirring up Oscar buzz for Jamie Foxx, and Robert Downey Jr. never fails to give us an incredible performance.
Roger Moore of the Orlando Sentinel, in the TNT’s “GO” review gave the film four stars out of five. He wrote, “This true story makes for an emotional transportive movie, a film about two “soloists”, loners, and how their connection changes both their lives. It’s marvelous work all around, especially by Foxx and Downey. Foxx makes Ayers mannered, nervous and sympathetic, yet a plainly ill man with the potential for violence. And Downey turns Lopez into an empathetic ear who journeys from just using Ayers to make a mark with his LA Times column to someone who realizes he needs to help this man in order to help himself. Their duet makes THE SOLOIST sing.”
