Robin Williams' final performance is also one of his finest in this drama from director Dito Montiel (A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints) about a closeted man who neglects his marriage of convenience to spend time with a young hustler.
Nolan Mack (Williams) is, on the surface, happily married and professionally satisfied, living the American dream and content with his life. But what others don’t know, including his wife (Kathy Baker), is that Nolan is going through the motions of a life of tremendous sacrifice—closeted, isolated, unfulfilled, and lonely as can be. One night, Nolan meets a young hustler (Roberto Aguire) and, in a confrontation that fatefully changes his entire existence—comes face to face with the lie he’s been living. Powerful and entirely human, Boulevard features a fantastically subtle but stunning performance from Robin Williams, heartbreaking in both the character’s nature and the fact it was one of the actor’s final roles.
