From the 2008 Independent Spirit Award’s “Someone to Watch” prize winner Ramin Bahrani (Chop Shop), Goodbye Solo is set to arrive on DVD August 25th from Lionsgate with a suggested retail price of $27.98.
With Goodbye Solo, Bahrani (who Roger Ebert called “the new great American director”) has created a profoundly uplifting story about an unlikely friendship between two very different men that has been entrancing critics since its debut.
The film was declared “powerful, riveting, inspiring” (Los Angeles Times); “touching and uplifting” (New York Post) and “an almost perfect film” (The New York Times).
In addition, Goodbye Solo has touched the lives of audiences across the country winning the International Critics Prize at the 2008 Venice Film Festival and becoming an Official Selection at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.
Synopsis: Solo (Souléymane Sy Savané) is a cheerful 34-year-old taxi driver from Senegal hoping for a better life in America. But when the hard-edged William (Red West), a 70-year-old white Southerner, enters Solo’s cab with an unusual request, this odd couple embarks on a journey that will change them both forever. From acclaimed director Ramin Bahrani comes a powerful story of friendship.
