Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Boulevard -- a drama about a closeted gay man -- features Robin Williams' final live-action performance. Though it's a coming-out story, the character goes through some very dark experiences, making it appropriate only for older teens and adults. Things get violent when an angry pimp beats up two characters, inflicting a bloody nose and a black eye; there's also some additional arguing, threatening, and brief violence. Language is sporadic but strong, with heavy uses of "f--k" and "f----t," as well as other terms. No sex is shown, but male prostitution is part of the story, and the main prostitute undresses, showing his bottom and the vague hint of his genitals. A character is said to have taken a drug overdose, and there's some social drinking and occasional cigarette smoking.
