Writer Steve Lopez and the Friendship That Changed his Life

How a Chance Encounter Changed Two Lives

Journalist Steve Lopez tells "Movies for Grownups" host Bill Newcott about meeting a homeless musician, who had been a young and gifted student at The Juilliard School in New York, before losing his way. Lopez's L.A. Times columns became a book, which is now a film starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jamie Foxx.
