Storyline

Nolan Mack is sixty, married, a literature professor, and well-regarded and leads a quiet uneventful. 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 ends up in a hotel room; not for sex - the older man has fallen in love with the young man. Having realised he was gay since age of twelve, Nolan's never been able to express his sexual orientation and Leo happens to crystallize his feelings and desires. But what extent will it affect his married life and professional career? Written by Guy Bellinger

Courageous effort from Williams
10 September 2015 | by jb_campoSee all my reviews

I liked this final Robin Williams film mostly because it shows how great an actor he really was. Williams stars as Nolan, a very nice, kind, sweet, unassuming 60 year old gentleman, who happens to be gay, but has kept himself in the closet for 50 years. His performance exudes happy frustration with his very being, making you wonder what really goes on behind the closed doors in his mind and home. How many stories in real life, Williams own included, have shown you seemingly happy people on the outside who, on the inside, can't take life anymore.

Nolan has reached this point by doing what was expected of him. He has worked in the same bank for 25 years. He lives with his wife Joy (Kathy Baker) whom he loves, but they don't do much other than have dinner and brief words. There is no intimacy, it seems they have never shared the same bed - no children. Obviously his wife must have known the truth. It makes me wonder why this issue never came to a flashpoint earlier.

This boring, risk-free life takes a change when Williams decides to chat up a male prostitute Leo (Roberto Aguirre) when he drives home past this known prostitute bridge. Why he chose this kid, it's never clear. Maybe he was thinking he could help this kid, who apparently used drugs, so maybe not a good choice, to lead a nice, happy, openly gay life. It's never clear.

The story goes on, a bit slowly, and Williams has to start building a web of lies to cover his contact with Leo. The consequences you might imagine are inevitable, but the ending offers you hope that, at least for Leo and Joy, perhaps things are working out for the best.

This is not a masterpiece, nor a must-see, but since we know it is William's last performance, you should see this performance that will remind you how great an actor we have lost. Now go out and rent Good Will Hunting or Good Morning Vietnam or Dead Poet's Society!!! Enjoy.
