Plot LA journalist Steve Lopez (Downey Jr.) is in search of a story. And, thanks to a cycling accident, he finds one in colourful tramp Nathaniel Ayers (Foxx), who has a secret history as a musical prodigy. Over time, though, Lopez becomes more than
a story; he becomes a mission.
Verdict Intelligent and uncompromising, with knock-out performances from Downey Jr. and Foxx .
