Ben (Michael Douglas of WALL STREET) once ruled a car-dealership empire vast enough to fuel a glossy Manhattan lifestyle and endow a library at an East Coast university. But by the time he arrives at the college with his girlfriend’s daughter, Allyson (Imogen Poots), who is a prospective student, his world has collapsed around his ears. A business scandal has cost him his income and his marriage to Nancy (Susan Sarandon of THELMA & LOUISE). His ever-present lust for every passing attractive woman threatens to take what little Ben has left. Even his new relationship with Jordan (Mary-Louise Parker of TV's WEEDS) oscillates with tension. When Ben takes Allyson to tour the school, his motives are more than mixed. An all-star cast including Danny DeVito (TV's IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA), Jenna Fischer (TV's THE OFFICE), and Jesse Eisenberg (ZOMBIELAND) round out this honest and precise drama.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Built around a singularly unpleasant main character, Solitary Man needed a flawless central performance to succeed -- and Michael Douglas delivers.
Gripping drama about getting older has drinking, sex.
