Rated PG-13 · 109 minutes · 2009

Drama, Musical
Worthwhile socially conscious drama pulls itself up a full two notches with the spirited performances of Jamie Foxx, as a homeless, mentally ill classical cellist, and Robert Downey as the newspaper columnist who first profiles him, then befriends him and offers help. UK move-over director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) keeps the pathos to a minimum and uses the chaotic side of Los Angeles to great effect — Nathaniel Anthony Ayers’ world is a wildly dangerous place. The screenplay, from LA Times reporter Steve Lopez’ book adapted by Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich), develops the feel-good plot in true newspaper style: a few heart tugs followed by a punch in the face. With Catherine Keener and Tom Hollander (109 min.).
