Ramin Bahrani United States, 2008

jameswharper's rating of the film Goodbye Solo

Beautifully acted and directed, the first film I've seen by Bahrani but will check out the others. Dropped a star because we learn surprisingly little about the characters, despite the nuances of the acting and screenplay. Is William Solo's angel rather than the other way round? Much better than the saccharine schmaltz of Intouchables which it reminded me of.
