Robin Williams plays the faithful bank clerk and husband Nolan Mack. For almost 26 years he's done the same job, his wife and he rarely speak nowadays and occupy separate beds. What starts as an aimless drive along a street Nolan has never been down develops into a situation in which he takes a decision that will turn the 60-year old's life upside down. He picks up rent boy Leo (Roberto Aguire) and drives him home. Nolan develops an interest in the young man, who faces massive problems. He would like to help him -- and in doing so loosens bit by bit the fetters of his own previous existence. Boulevard is a subtle, moving drama, with a wonderful last performance from Robin Williams, who died in August 2014.
