The trailer for Robin Williams final dramatic film has been released, and it's a tearjerker.

In Boulevard Williams plays a 60-year-old depressed, married man who begins to come to terms with his homosexuality after falling in love with a gay prostitute.

The film is directed by Dito Montiel, who previously helmed A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints and Fighting, and it also stars Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk and Kathy Baker and Williams' wife.

Williams died by suicide in August last year.  Before his death, Williams described Boulevard as a "beautiful, sad movie" that was "powerful to do".

Boulevard is scheduled for a limited July 10 release in the US following difficulty securing a distributor.
