Wherever you live, when this films opens, it will be the best film in town. Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Wonderful, moving and mysterious. Startlingly new and bracingly real. An almost perfect film. The New York Times.
Winner of the Venice Film Festivals prestigious FIPRESCI International Critics Prize, Goodbye Solo is the latest film from internationally-acclaimed filmmaker Ramin Bahrani (Chop Shop, Man Push Cart). On the lonely roads of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, two men forge an improbable friendship that will change both of their lives forever. Solo is a Senegalese cab driver working to provide a better life for his young family. William is a tough Southern good ol boy with a lifetime of regrets. One mans American dream is just beginning, while the others is quickly winding down. But despite their differences, both men soon realize they need each other more than either is willing to admit. Through this unlikely but unforgettable friendship, Goodbye Solo deftly explores the passing of a generation as well as the rapidly changing face of America.
