We gave it an B

There’s a heavy cloak of melancholy that hangs over the latest indie from Dito Montiel, director of 2006’s A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints. It mostly stems from the fact that the film features Robin Williams’ final dramatic performance, but it also has to do with his character: a closeted gay man who, at 60, finally acts on his yearnings with a young street hustler (Roberto Aguire) and destroys the quiet order he’s built during a life of denial. Williams summons a low-simmering sadness in a bittersweet turn that makes you rue all the roles we’ll never get to see him play. B
