The Soloist shows the real Los Angeles
Los Angeles is known worldwide for its fame. Whether its music stars or movie stars it is known by many as a glamorous place. Well, this next month "Hollywood" is coming out with a movie that depicts a more realistic version of Los Angeles, both the rich and the poor. Not only does the movie depict a more realistic version of LA, but it shows a realistic side of life for some 80,000 homeless in LA county. The Soloist is a movie about two men from very different backgrounds with very different lives that connect on a human level. I want to encourage you to check it out. Here is a link to a portion of the story between Steve Lopez and Nathanial.
