The Soloist

The Soloist Educational Resource Guide

From the director of the Academy Award®-nominated “Atonement,” Joe Wright, and starring Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx and Oscar® nominee Robert Downey Jr., comes this poignant and ultimately soaring tale based on an incredible true story of a disenchanted journalist’s transformative odyssey through the hidden streets of Los Angeles, where he discovers and builds a most unlikely friendship with a man from those same streets, bonding through the redemptive power of music.

The Soloist Educational Campaign focuses on the three main themes presented in the feature film, The Soloist: the tragedy of homelessness, the complexities of mental illness, and the power of music.
