Robin Williams’ performance in ‘Boulevard’ is a poignant yet hopeful story of a closeted man

Boulevard Poster without quotesAlmost a year after we lost Robin Williams comes one of his last roles in Boulevard, a story of a closeted man who starts the road to self-discovery. While there are tense moments, it is not driven by events, but the emotional journey of Nolan (Robin Williams). In this dramatic performance, Williams captures Nolan’s internal struggle as he finally acts on his feelings.
