When I first heard that there was a documentary coming out about the final days of Robin Williams, I feared for the worst. I worried that it would be one of those exploitative programs that featured reenactments and tabloid reporters sharing every sordid rumor that they had ever heard about the man.
However, the trailer for Robin’s Wish seems to indicate that the film is actually meant to be both a tribute to Williams and an educational tool about Lewy body dementia, the disease that is believed to have led to him ending his life. Let’s hope that it is.
Robin’s Wish will be released on September 1st.
