     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 a low budget film too.  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, 51% critic 29% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 3 ½*, Amazon 2.9* out of 5* with 314 reviews.
Special Note:  This movie was filmed in Nashville, Tennessee.  The script was originally titled, Santa Monica Boulevard.  The address of the bank where Nolan works is 3939 Gallatin Pike, Nashville, TN 3l7216.  There isn’t a bank at this location but a café named Slip Café.
