Engrossing drama in which a Los Angeles journalist (Robert Downey, Jr.) profiles and befriends a musically gifted homeless man (Jamie Foxx), and discovers, through the challenging relationship, an underworld of his city's dispossessed. Director Joe Wright's adaptation of Steve Lopez's book features impressive performances by both leads that lend eloquence to its implicit plea for treating the marginalized with dignity. Drug use, a few rough and crude words, a couple of uses of profanity and occasional sexual references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III—adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
