The Solitary Man Movie

In Uncategorized on June 27, 2010 at 6:24 pm

A man has it all.   He is married to his college sweetheart, he owns several very successful card dealerships, his daughter is married, he has a wonderful grandson.  Then things start to fall apart.   He goes to the doctor for a regular checkup and is told he needs to have further tests on his heart.   He does not have the tests.   He starts cooking the numbers at the car dealerships.   Obviously this works for a while then the auto manufacturers catch him.   He loses his dealerships, he divorces his wife for a younger woman, and starts cheating on her, etc.   There is an interesting finish where the viewer does not know how he ends up.   Michael Douglas is wonderful, Susan Saradon is great.   There is a wonderful supporting cast.
