The first glance into DreamWorks drama musical about a schizophrenic and homeless musical prodigy named Nathaniel Ayers.
"The Soloist", a musical drama movie from DreamWorks, has welcomed its first trailer. Promoting the based-on-true-story movie, the video focuses on the unlikely bond of friendship built between Steve Lopez, a columnist for the Los Angeles Times, and Nathaniel Ayers, a homeless and schizophrenic musician.
Telling the story of a journalist in the middle of writer's block and a musician who lost his way, "Soloist " follows Robert Downey Jr. as Lopez as he discovered an amazing talent, Ayers, on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. Finding out that Ayers, played by Jamie Foxx, is actually a musical prodigy specializing in playing the violin and the cello but becomes homeless after developing schizophrenia during his second year at Juilliard School, he decides to write about him.
From the director of "Pride and Prejudice" and "Atonement", Joe Wright, comes a feature film about the redemptive power of music. Scripted by Susannah Grant and produced by Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff, the flick will be making its way to the theaters on November 21.
