The Soloist

中文片名 心靈獨奏
評分 ★★★

這部電影是衝著Robert Downey Jr.看的,他是誰?IRON MAN!嘿嘿~這樣講沒有人不知道了吧。不過認真說來,Jamie Foxx應該才算是第一男主角,他是誰?唔….RAY!這樣講有知道嗎? 那個演盲眼R&B歌手的?

我並沒有特別喜歡這部真人真事電影,但是這部片想傳達的意思我覺得非常偉大。Jamie Foxx飾演的Nathaniel Ayers是個音樂神童,但是因為精神疾病所擾,從茱利亞音樂學院休學後,最後身無分文流浪街頭,無意間被L.A. Times的專欄記者Steve Lopez (Robert Downey Jr.飾演) 發現他的天份,想以他為主題特寫專欄。因為這樣的報導,有讀者主動捐出不要的大提琴給他彈奏,主動邀請他聆聽演奏會,因為這個記者的幫忙,他甚至有了住的地方。不過患有精神疾病的人當然不這麼容易被控制,要他做什麼就做什麼,這之中當然有衝突,有抗拒,Steve Lopez以真心作為Nathaniel Ayers的朋友所付出的這一切,最讓人感動。

片中最後記者Steve Lopez他說,“There are people who tell me I’ve helped him. Mental health experts who say that the simple act of being someone’s friend can change his brain chemistry, improve his functioning in the world. I can’t speak for Mr. Ayers in that regard. Maybe our friendship has helped him, but maybe not. I can, however, speak for myself. I can tell you that by witnessing Mr. Ayers’s courage, his humility, his faith in the power of his art, I’ve learned the dignity of being loyal to something you believe in. Of holding onto it, above all else. Of believing, without question, that it will carry you home.” 本來因為覺得片子稍微冗長的我,最後看到這裡,就覺得這真是部該讓大家體會的電影啊,好感人喔,(人人都需要友情~)。
