Jamie Foxx in The Soloist

March 3, 2009

Set to release April 24th 2009, The Soloist staring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr is based on the life of musician Nathaniel Ayers. I must say h’m really looking froward to seeing this one. I don’t know what it is about Jamie Foxx but he is suited to play the roles of music legends and does a great job portraying the struggles provided by their disabilities. He gave an Oscar winning performance in Ray and I’m sure he won’t disappoint in the next one.

Here is a short synopsis provided by: ThatsReelTalk

the-soloist-movie-poster-1Based on the true story of musical prodigy Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx), who developed schizophrenia in his second year at Juilliard and ended up homeless on the streets of downtown L.A. where he performs the violin and cello. The drama is based on the relationship the musician developed with Steve Lopez (Downey), a Los Angeles Times reporter whose column informed the script, as did a book Lopez is writing that Putnam will publish in the spring.
