Watch: Robin Williams in Trailer for ‘Boulevard,’ His Final On-Screen Role

The first trailer for “Boulevard,” Robin Williams’ final onscreen performance (he voices a character in the upcoming film “Absolutely Anything”), spotlights the late actor’s dramatic range.

The movie follows a 60-year-old married man (Williams) who’s stuck in a dead-end job as a bank manager. The character is in denial about his sexuality until he befriends a young gay street hustler (Roberto Aguire).

Our critic Peter Debruge wrote in his review that the film tapped into the same loneliness felt in Williams’ “One Hour Photo” and “Good Will Hunting.”

Directed by Dito Montiel (“The Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”), the film also stars Bob Odenkirk and Kathy Baker.

“Boulevard” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and hits theaters on July 10.

    Well; well, well…..this year’s Selma because you know if RW does not get an Oscar it’s because of homophobia; and did you also know that RW was considering a ‘Transition…’ Looks like a good performance, I just hate the ‘Gay’ angle; no, not homophobic, just think it’s a cliche for a man to come out at 60… I know it might be true to our culture, but as a dramatic device it’s lame. He was such a great dramatic actor but I think this film might have worked better as a man in a post midlife crisis; then of course the film would not have been made as the idea here is to make a ‘accept me as a gay man’ statement as opposed to a character that works to find his own happiness… too bad he killed himself; but other than the cliched subject matter, looks like a good film… just one I won’t see as I’m sick of gay story lines, like to see something more interesting than some, ‘I’m gay and I’m free and now I can really be me…’ WHO F**KING CARES!!! Plus too, I have a very hard time accepting RW as a gay man… his character I mean. Better cast as a rapist (a lady rapist… hahahhaha; he looks like a horny guy).
