"Dear Dolores, I saw Dr. Shirley play the piano. He's like a genius, I think."
Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen present honest, heartfelt performances, that strike several heartstrings. This Oscar worthy script focuses on its characters and their stories. Following a black musician (Ali) on tour of the deep south in the 60's. A charismatic club bouncer (Mortensen) is hired as the driver/guard. The two form a unique relationship that I'm not going to forget anytime soon. I wouldn't call this Oscar bait, as it has been called. It isn't much of a cinematic spectacle. Just a simple but poignant and warming story that's worthy of your time.
