Storyline

Nolan Mack is a well-regarded sixty-year-old married literature professor, who leads a quiet and uneventful life. One night, as he drives home, he nearly runs into a hustler. Sorry for what might have happened, Nolan starts a conversation with the young man (named Leo) and they end up in a hotel room. Nolan, however, is not there for sex; he has fallen in love with Leo. Despite realizing he was gay at age twelve, Nolan's never been able to express his sexual orientation. However, Leo crystallizes Nolan's feelings and desires. To what extent will this affect his married life and professional career? Written by Guy Bellinger

Very poetic that this is the final Robin Williams movie. It's almost his way of telling us how he was dealing with his problems.
31 August 2015 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"Sometimes it's nice to be somewhere else." Nolan (Williams) has a great wife and a huge promotion coming at his job. He has everything going for him, but he has been keeping a secret from everyone his whole life. When he meets Leo (Aguire) he finally finds a way to be himself, but he still struggles with revealing himself. There are some movies that are made better by casting choices. There are some things that a person is the perfect choice for and you can't imagine watching it without them (Gandolfini in the Sopranos). This movie is the rare combination of those plus real world events that makes the movie actually transcend the screen and makes it feel more real and it has that much more of an impact. In this movie Robin Williams plays a character that struggle with something that he has to keep hidden from everyone while trying to be who they want him to be. The fact that he himself was trying to hide depression from everyone while trying to still be "Robin Williams" really adds an extra dimension to the character and makes the movie all the more emotional. The movie itself if just OK, but the real world events are really what makes this a movie to watch. Overall, very poetic that this is the final live action Robin Williams movie. It is almost his way of telling us how he was dealing with his problems. For that reason I recommend this. I give this a B+.
