From highly touted Iranian-American director Ramin Bahrani (“Man Push Cart,” “Chop Shop”), this narrative feature tells the story of an unlikely friendship between Solo, a Senegalese cab driver (Souleymane Sy Savane), and William, an elderly Southern man (Red West, who was part of Elvis' Memphis Mafia). Set in Winston-Salem and with mostly non-professional actors, it won the Venice Film Festival's FIPRESCI International Critics Prizes and has attracted a surfeit of critical love, most gushingly from the New York Times' A.O. Scott, who called it a “near perfect film.”
