Trailer For Robin Williams Final Film Appearance Goes Online (Recap)
Now there is one more. And based on the trailer just released this week, it sounds like a doozy. Boulevard stars Williams as Nolan Mack, a married, middle-aged banker who is questioning his sexual identity. He's caring to his eldery father and his wife (Kathy Baker), but inside he's confused, carrying a heavy weight he's been burdened with for a long time.
On impulse one night, however, he meets a young street hustler (Roberto Aguire), paying not for sex but for companionship. This unhinges his routine and opens the door to change.
"This is one of the kindest characters Williams has ever played," Variety reported on Boulevard after a screening at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, "which makes his self-imposed turmoil all the more tragic." The reviewer goes on to say that Williams "[taps] into that same loneliness felt in One Hour Photo and Good Will Hunting" and "projects a regret so deep and identifiable, viewers should have no trouble connecting it to whatever is missing in their own lives."
In other words, this promises to be a far more impactful experience than, say, Night at the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb, the late 2014 release that also featured one of Williams' final roles.
Being described as Williams' final on-screen performance, Boulevard was directed by Dito Montiel, the story conceived, according to Variety, after his parents split up late in life.
As Mack's friend (played by Bob Odenkirk) says at one point, 'Maybe it's never too late to start living the life you really want." Watch the trailer - here.
