Synopsis

In North Carolina, the optimistic taxi driver Souléymane Solo is hired by William, a stoic 70-year-old, to drive him to Blowing Rock, the peak of a jagged mountain, in two weeks time. When Solo finds out that William’s plan is to commit suicide, he decides to stop him by becoming his friend.

Our take

The American dream gets a sharp-eyed, open-hearted look from the ground up in this outstanding indie. In the title role, Souleymane Sy Savane is a captivating force of life, and rising director Ramin Bahrani bowled over the critics, including Roger Ebert, who declared it one of the year’s best.
