    WHAT:     Paramount Home Entertainment is celebrating the release of The
              Soloist on DVD and Blu-ray by declaring Tuesday, August 4 A
              Solo Act of Kindness Day. The Soloist is the inspirational true
              story of Los Angeles Times journalist Steve Lopez's friendship
              with homeless classical musical prodigy Nathaniel Ayers. It
              served as the basis for the critically-acclaimed film The
              Soloist starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx. The film
              will debut on DVD and Blu-ray on August 4 and Paramount Home

              with a fitting event.
              On August 4 everyone is encouraged to make the world a better
              place and take part in the Solo Act of Kindness day. Honoring
              Lopez's courage and commitment to give of himself with little
              hope of reciprocation, the Solo Act of Kindness day will
              celebrate individuals' selfless acts of kindness for those in
              Canadians are encouraged to make someone's day just a little
              bit better by carrying out any "Solo Act of Kindness." Whether
              it be donating time to a local charity or community
              organization, helping someone less fortunate pay for morning
              coffee, or simply assisting someone who needs a helping hand.
