Ben Loves His Family Almost As Much As He Loves Himself.
A car magnate watches his personal and professional life hit the skids because of his business and romantic indiscretions.

"A sharp, small-scale comedy of male misbehavior that turns out to be one of this dreary spring's pleasant cinematic surprises.  A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"It's Douglas' movie - and you've got a fine movie.  Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

Editor's Note
Frequent 1980s co-stars Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito reunite for this comedy-drama hybrid. In SOLITARY MAN, a middle-aged man finds he isn?t the person he wanted to be: his career is in shambles, and he turns off every woman he meets. This film from Brian Koppelman and David Levien (ROUNDERS) also stars Susan Sarandon and Mary-Louise Parker.

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
For an actor with so many film credits, Michael Douglas hasn't played many conventional heroes. Yes, he did those "Romancing the Stone" roles, and he's been more memorable as a villain (Wall Street), but his strongest roles are as sinners: not big or bad enough to be villains, more ordinary men, smart, glib, conniving, trying to get by on short dues. Here is where he best uses his considerable screen presence. And he gets better at it as he grows older, because his characters keep on sinning when they just don't have the stamina for it anymore...In Solitary Man, he plays Ben Kalman, once a regional celebrity as "New York's Honest Car Dealer." Ben is good-looking, still has that great head of hair, and is as persuasive as - well, as a good car dealer. In business, he can sense what car to put you in. In sex, he can sense what mood to put you on. He closes a lot of deals...This is a smart, effective film, a comedy in many ways even though it's bookended with reasons for Ben to see it as a potential tragedy. It's a serious comedy, perceptive, nuanced, with every supporting performance well-calibrated to demonstrate to Ben that he can run but he can no longer hide. One of the best is by DeVito, who has been standing behind his counter for years and is perfectly content. He doesn't have that hunger that gnaws at Ben...Imogen Poots is good, too, as the girl going away to school. She could sell Honest Ben the Brooklyn Bridge, and he would think he was talking her into it. As the college-interview trip begins to fall apart, so does Ben's shaky financial future, and he has a meeting with a banker (Richard Schiff) that plays out with relentless logic...Here is one of Michael Douglas' finest performances. Because the other characters, no matter what they think, never truly engage Ben Kalman, he's on that stage by himself. Everyone else is in the audience. Douglas plays Ben as charismatic, he plays him shameless, he plays him as brave, and very gradually, he learns to play him as himself. That's the only role left. - Roger Ebert
