Directed by Dito Montiel
Nolan Mack, a soft-spoken bank employee, undoubtedly loves his wife Joy, though their cavernous empty house only underscores how disconnected they’ve always been from each other. Nolan finds himself drifting from his familiar present-day life in pursuit of lost time after meeting a troubled young man named Leo on his drive home. What begins as an aimless drive down an unfamiliar street turns into a life-altering series of events.

★★★½ review by Matthew L. Brady on Letterboxd
Robin Williams delivers a great and strong performance in his last performance. "Boulevard" has it's moments and those are mostly the emotional scenes with Robin, has he deals with his struggles in life and the feeling of being left out. The movie has heart and it's a beautiful looking movie. The movie isn't flawless, but it dose have it's great moments and the overall film is worth checking out.
★★★½ review by Matt Thomas on Letterboxd
A really moving, mature performance from Williams. The less you know about the story of this film going in, the better, but sufficient say that it's great to see him play this sort of role at this stage of his career (and tragically of course now his last serious role).
The character he plays is a little too naive at times and makes some unlikely actions. But the weariness is palpable, the sense of lost direction vivid, and the intention to do the right thing heartbreaking. Odenkirk gives good support too.
★★★★ review by Jacob Fisher on Letterboxd
Great strong last performance for Robin William who is really underrated for his drama work done in past films. This and World's Greatest Dad is easily two of my favorite performances from him. The story takes it time but I promise you it's worth it.
★★★★ review by Chip on Letterboxd
Another movie shot in Nashville that has nothing to do with country music. Woo hoo!
The other day, my mom told me that she went to the movies for the first time in almost ten years. The movie she saw: Heaven is for Real. The other movie she wants to see: Boulevard with Robin Williams. The reason is because they shot a scene outside her house for a day last spring. I have to admit, I'm impressed she knew Robin Williams is in it. I'm even more impressed she knows the title of the movie. And I'm a little astounded that she knew it was playing at the Nashville Film Festival. But I wonder if she knew it was about a sixty year old man who starts courting a young male prostitute. Would make for a great double feature with Heaven is For Real.

We really lost a very talented actor in Robin Williams, it's often forgotten how good he was in dramatic roles and his performance in Boulevard is no different.
