SiIencio's rating of the film Goodbye Solo

Painfully mono-dimensional. The inscrutable William and the obsessive Solo dance a dance so far apart. I wondered what pushed one towards the other and the other towards a fatal end. In the meantime, anecdotal circumstantial clues leading to nowhere, nothing to build upon, back to square one despite a big heart and good intentions.
