The Soloist

109 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

"Based on a true story... a story in progress" (puh-huh-huh-leeeeeeze), The Soloist concerns one Steve Lopez, a Los Angeles Times columnist looking for his next big story while trying to stay afloat in a drowning business. One lucky day, he comes across a fiddlin' hobo, Nathaniel Ayers, who hates littering, loves patriotic top hats, is all crazy in the brains, and something-something-something about Juilliard. Lopez is on the case! Lopez finds Ayers a cello, and Ayers gets all schiz-motional, and then he plays the cello in the freeway tunnel, and then the pigeons fly, fly, fly meaningfully away over downtown L.A. while Ayers pulls special music faces (so you know he's FEELIN' IT), and Lopez gets weepy in the eyeballs, and the pigeons fly ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN! Wow.
