This film is rescheduled for Thursday, February 7 at 4 p.m. and 6p.m. Winston-Salem film stays with you

Posted on: January 29, 2013

Three characters in the next library movie will stay with you long after the credits roll.  Solo is a smiling taxicab driver from Senegal.  Alex, the young daughter of Solo’s Mexican-American wife is intelligent and inquisitive, and he loves her as his own. William, a white Southerner, has no urge to smile or be inquisitive.

The library is showing Goodbye, Solo,  a story of friendship and caring, of hope and despair, Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. by North Carolina born filmmaker Ramin Bahrani, a past Guggenheim Fellow.  The film was made in Winston-Salem and Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  Running time is 91 minutes and the film rated R.

Solo is driving his cab one night when he picks up William to carry him back to his motel.  William has another request.  In two weeks he wants a ride to the mountaintop at Blowing Rock. He’s willing to pay $1,000.  He does not mention a return trip.  Call 837-2417 for details.
