Boulevard

Though Robin Williams was known mostly for his comedic work, he was a versatile actor who could also tap into his dramatic range to moving effect. That’s the side on display in the first trailer for Boulevard, his final onscreen performance.

Williams plays Nolan, who on the surface seems to be doing just fine. He has a decent, well-paying job, and a peaceful marriage with a nice woman named Joy (Kathy Baker). Secretly, however, Nolan is struggling with being gay. His issues come bubbling up after he makes an impulsive decision to pick up a young street hustler (Roberto Aguire).

Dito Montiel directed, and Bob Odenkirk co-stars as Nolan’s best friend. Watch the Boulevard trailer after the jump. Read More »
