Film: Goodbye Solo

Goodbye Solo, hailed as “a force of nature” by film critic Roger Ebert and the winner of the Venice Film Festival’s FIPRESCI International Critics Prize, tells the story of two men from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who forge an unlikely friendship. Solo is a Senegalese cab driver working to provide a better life for his young family. William is a tough Southern good ol’ boy with a lifetime of regrets. One man’s American dream is just beginning, while the other’s is winding down. But despite their differences, both men realize they need each other more than either will admit.

Goodbye Solo screens at the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs on Tuesday, July 21, at 8 p.m. Admission is $8, or $5 for children under 12. For details, call 774-392-2972.
