Boulevard

Synopsis: Nolan Mack is sixty. Married to Joy, a charming and intelligent woman, friend to Winston, a bright literature professor, and well-regarded in the bank where he works, Noland leads a quiet uneventful life. But is he happy, as his superior at the bank once asks him...? One night, as he drives back home, he nearly runs into a gay hooker. Sorry for what might have happened, Nolan starts a conversation with the young man named Leo and ends up in a hotel room. Not for paid sex as Leo expects though. In fact, the polished old man has fallen in love with the raw prostitute. For, having been gay since the age of twelve, Nolan has never been able to express his sexual orientation and Leo happens to crystallize all his feelings and desires. But is a hooker the ideal object of a romantic love? And to what extent will it affect his married life and professional career?

Dad?

What is it?

What is it you want?

Ginger ale? Do you want a ginger ale, Dad?

He can't have that!

Why not? The other nurse didn't say anything.

Well, I'm saying something... carbonation.

It's better for him.

Do you really think it matters?

Yes, I do.

We tried, Dad.

- Hey. - Hey.

- You're awake? - Sorta.

Okay.

- Good morning. - Good morning.

Thank you. Who is that guy?

Somebody. Did you use the chamomile?

Of course.

Is this any good?

"New York Times" didn't care for it too much.

- I liked the first one better. - I'm sure.

- Hey, have a good day. - You, too.

Hey, don't forget to pick up the wine for dinner tonight.

Yeah.

- See ya. - See ya.

It all looks very good. You're gonna be just fine.

I can't believe we just bought a house.

- Yeah. - Feel like I have writer's cramp.

It is a lot.

I just need to get the manager to sign this

and you can start picking out furniture.

Be right back.

If you can please sign this, we'll be done over there.

Hanson and McKay.

God is gonna strike me dead for this one.

- Nolan. - Hmm?

- Are you happy? - Excuse me?

Are you happy?

I guess as much as anyone, you know?

I mean, here at your job, our bank.

Of course.

They can wait. There's no rush for the...

two over there.

I mean, you've been here at this branch,

what, 25 years now, right?

- Almost 26. - Impressive.

Thank you.

You must have thought about making a change from time to time.

I've been here a long time.

I know the people, the customers, you know.

You know, there's a job coming up at the Belvedere Park branch.

You'd be branch manager, like me.

A bump in pay, some perks. You'd be running the show.

You interested?

Wow, that's... that's a big surprise.

Well, it all hinges on Ralph Blydon, of course.

- Regional president. - Yes.

I talked you up, and he'd like to meet.

He suggested dinner at his home, something intimate.

Me, my wife Gloria, you and your wife... Joy?

- Joy, yeah. - Joy, sure, of course.

- Don't mind them. - Okay.

My secretary will contact you with the date and details.

We'll see where it goes.

- And don't look so worried. - Okay.

This'll be good for you. It's a good thing.

Of course. Thank you. I'll head back.

Of course.

Oh, perfect. Mm.

Just need another 30 minutes.

Mm.

All we have to do now is let the wine breathe and we're good to go.

The wine. I completely forgot. Oh, damn it.

Oh, no, if we don't have a reasonable Cabernet for Winston,

he'll pout all the way through dessert.

I'll go out and grab one.

You don't have time to go to the wine store, Nolan.

I'll hit the mini-mart around the corner.

- Nolan. - Babe, I know.

Only the best for the professor, please.

Oh, but hurry! Please.

Of course!

This kid was an English comp grad student

- and he asked me who Rushdie was. - A grad student?

- Yeah, Patty was there, right? - Yeah.

I considered weeping publicly, but then I thought, what the hell?

I just said, "Well, he's an archeologist or something."

Yeah, no, I think that you said he was an astronaut.

I said he was an astronaut. The last astronaut on the moon.

Well, this food was excellent, and the company's even better.

And this wine was undoubtedly $7.99.

Well, it's a good week.

I was wondering how long it would take you to notice.

Well, I have a theory about fine wine, which is that...

- Oh, do tell. - ...nobody really knows

or even likes it or opera or...

- Foreign movies. - ...foreign movies.

Oh, no, no, no, no, no.

- Yes. - Not foreign movies.

No, but really.

No, but, Joy, this meal has been very delicious, thank you.

I think it's just the fourth glass
