RELEASE DATE : AUGUST 25TH
Goodbye Solo, one of the most critically-acclaimed theatrical releases of the year, comes to DVD this August from Lionsgate. The film was directed by Ramin Bahrani (Chop Shop), a recipient of the 2008 Independent Spirit Award’s “Someone to Watch” prize and who Roger Ebert called “the new great American director.” With Goodbye Solo, Bahrani 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. A must see for all film lovers, Goodbye Solo will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $27.98.
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 and forgiveness.
