In The Soloist, Joe Wright turns Steve Lopez' Los Angeles Times series into schlock

The Soloist opens with newspapers thudding onto lawns, a quaint sight that makes the movie practically a period piece, even though the events that inspired it took place within the last four years. An old-fashioned tale for a new-fangled world,…
