Directed by Tylor Norwood (also serving as producer and cinematographer), the film relays the legend of Robin Williams, and investigates his final few months. With the support of Robin’s widow, Susan Schneider Williams, and several close friends and colleagues, ROBIN’S WISH underscores what made Robin Williams such a beloved figure, and details how a surprise diagnosis of Lewy Body Dementia helped answer questions surrounding his death.
SYNOPSIS: Robin’s Wish tells the powerful true story of actor/comedian Robin Williams’ final days. For the first time, Robin’s fight against a deadly neurodegenerative disorder, known as Lewy Body Dementia, is shown in stunning detail. Through a gripping journalistic lens, this incredible story sheds an entirely new light on the tragedy, beauty and power behind the mind of one of the greatest entertainers of all time.
Norwood comments on his film,
“It is a moment for us to understand the pain he felt as his talents and faculties rapidly slipped away, and moreover how in the face of that terrifying reality, he was more heroic, more compassionate than any character he ever played in any of his movies. So I hope this film rights a wrong that was done to him, and takes away a cloud that has unjustly hung over his legacy for far too long.”
A must-see for admirers of Robin Williams, as well as film fans across-the-board, ROBIN’S WISH is a poignant eulogy to the entertainment legend. It will be available on digital and on demand from January 4th, 2021.
