The Soloist

So we saw this Wednesday night. It wasnt so much what I thought it would be. It is a true story and I saw the story on 60 minutes so I had an idea, but there is a huge focus on homelessness and mental health issues. I learned that there are 90,000 homeless people in Los Angeles and most of the 'actor's used in the homeless scenes where in fact homeless.  Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. are extremely talented and deserve some accolades for their performances. The LAMP community was highlighted and I learned how much they do to end homelessness. It a must see, but it isnt light and funny really at all, pretty intense movie.
