LOS ANGELES, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Inception Film Partners announced Thursday it has acquired the international distribution rights to Boulevard featuring the late Robin Williams in his final on-screen role.

Directed by Dito Montiel and written by Douglas Soesbe, the film co-stars Kathy Baker, Bob Odenkirk and Roberto Aguire.

"The routine of everyday life quietly peels away to reveal the struggle of a loving husband in conflict with his inner self," a synopsis said.

"Nolan Mack and his wife Joy wake up under the same roof each morning, their separate bedrooms underscoring the disparate worlds they're living in. Nolan's disconnection carries on in his job at the bank, where even a promotion cannot seem to lift the emptiness that permeates his life.

His emotional journey begins to unfold when Nolan encounters a troubled young man. Nolan finds himself forced, for the first time, to confront the loneliness of his longtime marriage. While bravely risking every relationship in his life, Nolan opens himself to an incredible opportunity where desire might find its way back into his heart."

Inception said it plans to screen the movie at the American Film Market in Santa Monica next week.

Williams hanged himself at his home Aug. 11 after years of battling depression. He was 63.

The Oscar-winning actor will be seen in the dark comedy A Merry Friggin' Christmas next month and in the family fantasy flick Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb in December.
