Robin Williams in Boulevard
A trailer for the late Robin Williams’ final drama, in which he played a gay man, has been released.
The 63-year-old Williams was found dead in August last year at his home in Marin County, California after he committed suicide.
The comedy icon and dramatic actor was not only a supporter of gay rights, but also played gay roles in at least three of his movies, including his final on-screen performance.
In the new dramatic film Boulevard, Williams plays Nolan Mack, a married man who begins the journey of self-discovery late in life, including accepting his homosexuality.
Robert Aguire has the role of a young rent boy he comes into contact with, while Kathy Baker plays Nolan’s wife. It seems like it could be quite the emotional tear-jerker.
Boulevard opens in July in the US. There is no scheduled release date for South Africa yet.
The film Absolutely Anything, to which Williams lent his voice, will be released in August.
