Boulevard 2014

     Nolan and Joy Mack have been married for 30 years, they are in their 60's and they have always seemed to get along.  Nolan has worked at the same bank branch for 26 years.  His boss has recommended him for a promotion at another branch.  Nolan has been visiting his father at the hospital and he meets Leo when he turns down a different street than he usually uses.  He gives Leo a ride and they start staying in contact with each other.  Leo’s life is complicated and Eddie bullies him.  Nolan wants to help Leo but it’s making Nolan’s life more complicated.  This is threatening his marriage and his current job plus the possibility of a new job
     This is the last movie filmed by Robin Williams.  I really wish it had been a better movie.  There is only so much actors can do with a script and this is also a low budget film.  2 ½* (This movie is so-so)

88 min, Drama directed by Dito Montiel with Robin Williams, Roberto Aguire, Kathy Baker, Giles Matthey, Eleonore Hendricks, Bob Odenkirk, Henry Haggard, Gary Gardner, Crystal Gray, Joshua Decker.

Note:  Imdb 5.8 out of 10, 52% critic 29% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 3 ½*, Amazon 2.8* out of 5* with 288 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in Nashville, Tennessee.  The script was originally titled, Santa Monica Boulevard.
