The trailer has been released for Robin Williams’ final film, Boulevard, where he plays a married man confronting his sexuality.

Boulevard premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and will be released in the US next month.  No New Zealand release date has been announced yet.

Before his death, Williams told US Weekly Boulevard was “a very beautiful and sad movie about this guy who falls in love with a gay prostitute, basically comes out. He’s married, and he has to come out to his wife and he’s not fulfilled on that level. It was powerful to do.”

Peter Debruge says in a review for Variety “This is one of the kindest characters Williams has ever played, which makes his self-imposed turmoil — the consequence of not wanting to hurt anyone, least of all his wife — all the more tragic.”
