Storyline

Nolan Mack is a well-regarded sixty-year-old married literature professor, who leads a quiet and uneventful life. One night, as he drives home, he nearly runs into a hustler. Sorry for what might have happened, Nolan starts a conversation with the young man (named Leo) and they end up in a hotel room. Nolan, however, is not there for sex; he has fallen in love with Leo. Despite realizing he was gay at age twelve, Nolan's never been able to express his sexual orientation. However, Leo crystallizes Nolan's feelings and desires. To what extent will this affect his married life and professional career? Written by Guy Bellinger

An engaging story
22 August 2015 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a seemingly happy sixty year old man, with a decent job and a lovely wife. A random encounter makes him reevaluate his life priorities, and he decides to shred his lies and lives the life he really wants.

As one of Robin Williams' final films, I'm so glad that "Boulevard" shines in just about every aspect, namely Robin Williams' performance, the plot and the brilliant production. The story is subtle but perfectly portrays the complex psychological battle that Nolan goes through. He's a man who is lonely, and yet he seeks attention from the wrong person, as in a person whose love is for rent. The final showdown between Nolan and Joy is very touching, because I feel for both Nolan and Joy.

"Boulevard" tells a very engaging story about a man finally coming to terms with his inner turmoil. I hope more people will have a chance to watch it, because Nolan's story is actually not uncommon in real life.
