Storyline

Nolan Mack is sixty. Married to Joy, a charming and intelligent woman, friend to Winston, a bright literature professor, and well-regarded in the bank where he works, Noland leads a quiet uneventful life. But is he happy, as his superior at the bank once asks him...? One night, as he drives back home, he nearly runs into a gay hooker. 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 paid sex as Leo expects though. In fact, the polished old man has fallen in love with the raw prostitute. For, having been gay since the age of twelve, Nolan has never been able to express his sexual orientation and Leo happens to crystallize all his feelings and desires. But is a hooker the ideal object of a romantic love? And to what extent will it affect his married life and professional career? Written by Guy Bellinger

Robin Williams Mesmerises In His Final Dramatic Role!
25 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Late/Great Robin Williams delivers a dramatic, challenging & ultimately mesmerizing performance in 'Boulevard'. The acting legend, who we tragically lost a year ago, makes us remember once again that he was an actor, who had the range that a very few do.

'Boulevard' Synopsis: A devoted husband in a marriage of convenience is forced to confront his secret life.

'Boulevard' works well as a film too. Its definitely depressing, but there are some confounding moments here too. Its slow-paced for sure, but watching the protagonist's struggle with his sexuality & life, holds your attention. You feel for him & Williams's performance anchors the show.

Douglas Soesbe's Screenplay is quite good. Even the dialogue, are natural. Dito Montiel's Direction is skilled. Cinematography is competently done. Editing is well-done.

Performance-Wise: Its Williams all the way. But even the supporting cast deliver incredibly. Kathy Baker is nothing short of astonishing in her portrayal of Williams's long-suffering wife. Her subtlety leaves you heartbroken. Bob Odenkirk is in good form too. Roberto Aguire is a revelation. He enacts a rather difficult part, with remarkable understanding.

On the whole, 'Boulevard' is a compelling watch, with a towering performance by Williams.
