Ramin Bahrani knows how to capture beauty of a struggle. Just check out his film Man Push Cart. He tells stories that are eerily haunting in an all too real gritty way.
Goodbye Solo is Bahrani's latest offering and it looks like it will be another one of his bittersweet masterpieces.
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 man‘s American dream is just beginning, while the other‘s is quickly winding down.
You can check Goodbye Solo at the SXSW fest or later on when it opens in NYC and Chicago on March 27th.
