Australian actor Giles Matthey co-stars with Robin Williams in his final on-screen performance as the trailer has been released for one of the most anticipated films to hit screens this year.
The Boulevard is set for release in the US on July 17 and it shows a side to Williams that is sure to bring tears to many fans.
In “Boulevard,” a middle-aged married man picks up a gay hustler on the Nashville street where hookers hang out, pays the kid for company instead of sex, and ever-so-gradually begins to confront the secret identity he’s suppressed for so long.
The film had it’s world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last year.
In reviewing the film for Variety Chief International Film Critic Peter Debruge wrote: “Knowing that man is played by Robin Williams (in morose rather than manic mode) tells you everything you need to know about the film, which is well written, acted and directed, and yet somehow never manages to surprise.”
“That approach has its advantages, however, making the unfulfilled character’s sexuality almost secondary to the ways in which straight audiences can relate.”
Aussie Matthey co-stars along with Kathy Baker and Bob Odenkirk — who plays Saul Goodman in Better Call Saul.
