REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..The Soloist isn't about BIG MOMENTS, it's about the grace notes, the kind that stay with you..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“.."The Soloist," thoughtful in its approach, should make its viewers think as well..”
by Sarah Bryan Miller [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
“..imperfect, periodically if unsurprisingly sentimental, overly tidy and often very moving..”
by Manohla Dargis [NY Times]
