New American Cinema

SIFF Says:

Nolan Mack (Robin Williams) is, on the surface, happily married and professionally satisfied, living the American dream and content with his life. But what other don’t know, including his warm 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 tells the story of a man transcending patterns of pretending to embrace the person he truly is. Williams gives a fantastically subtle but stunning performance, heartbreaking in both the character’s nature and the fact it was one of the actor’s final roles. Boulevard is both a bittersweet swan song to Williams’ life and a reminder of the arsenal of beautiful talent he’s left behind.
