In connection with our exhibition Concrete & Adrift: On the Poverty Line, we will be screening this touching film, based on a true story. The Soloist focuses on a columnist who, while searching for story ideas, stumbles upon a homeless street musician with extraordinary talent.

The film tells the story of the struggles both experience while the columnist uses his work to try and benefit both and all that he learns in the process. Released in 2009 by Dreamworks, the film stars Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr.
