BOULEVARD
2014, Starz Digital Media, 88 min, USA, Dir: Dito Montiel

Robin Williams’ final film offers a haunting look at a man leading a double life. Nolan Mack (Williams) shuffles between his job at a Nashville bank, the house he shares with wife Joy (Kathy Baker) and his father’s nursing home the same way he has for years, until he spots Leo (Roberto Aguire) on the boulevard. Nolan picks the young hustler up not for sex but for conversation, but as their meetings continue his comfortable façade grows increasingly difficult to maintain. With Bob Odenkirk. “[A] tender but unsentimental take on a story that benefits from finesse.” - John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.


CLEAN AND SOBER
1988, Warner Bros., 124 min, USA, Dir: Glenn Gordon Caron

Hustler Daryl Pointer (Michael Keaton) checks himself into a rehab clinic in an attempt to hide out for a while, but soon has to face the fact that he's an addict himself. Michael Keaton gives one of his best performances as the cocaine-addicted Daryl, and Morgan Freeman and Kathy Baker offer top-notch support.
