If "Boulevard" is the last note of Robin Williams' film career, I can't think of a better way to end his song. He brilliantly plays a 60 year old man who is married to a woman, but is finally coming to terms with his sexual identity. Beginning innocently enough, he purchases time with a male prostitute, not for sex, but for companionship. Over the course of the movie, the relationship progresses as our lead becomes more comfortable with who he really is. As he does, he begins to fall through on responsibilities and his relationship crumbles. When the credits roll, a powerful lesson is born; “Be true to yourself.” Robin’s life and this film are a testament to this fundamental ideal.
Thanks for entering my world,
