Boulevard 2014 Watch Online
Giles Matthey, Kathy Baker, Roberto Aguire, Robin Williams
Nolan Mack, a soft-spoken bank employee, undoubtedly loves his wife Joy, though their cavernous empty house only underscores how disconnected theyâ€™ve always been from each other. Nolan finds himself drifting from his familiar present-day life in pursuit of lost time after meeting a troubled young man named Leo on his drive home. What begins as an aimless drive down an unfamiliar street turns into a life-altering series of events.
A devoted husband in a marriage of convenience is forced to confront his secret life.
Boulevard is a pretty atypical film. It’s well directed by Dito Montiel (who also made Guide To Recognizing Your Saints) and the script is okay, even having some genuine laughs in it. The performances all around, not just Williams, are fine, including Kathy Baker as his wife, Roberto Acquire as the troubled youth he befriends and Bob Odenkirk in a small role as one of his accomplices and friend named Winston. It’s really Robin Williams who shines through though.
This may not be one of his absolute best performances, but for being one of his final roles, it isn’t a bad role either. Williams isn’t being manically over the top (overly dramatic) in this film. He’s showing the level of restraint that he’s usually showed in some of his best roles like Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society. For example, when he confronts his wife after missing dinner, instead of screaming and hollering, he tries to calm her down, and is very resourceful as playing it cool.
