Robin Williams' Final Days Revealed in 'Robin's Wish' Doc Film Trailer
"He was blessed with what his heart was capable of." Vertical Ent. has released an official trailer for an indie documentary titled Robin's Wish, which will be releasing on VOD at the beginning of September for anyone interested. "An intimate portrait of Robin Williams and his invulnerable spirit, Robin's Wish is the story of what really happened to one of the greatest entertainers of all time - and what his mind was fighting." It's a profile of his final days in 2014 and his struggle at the end of his life. The director explains that Robin's wife, Susan Schneider-Williams, reached out to him about making a "science documentary about a neurological disease I’d never heard of — Lewy Body Dementia… She began telling me about herself and Robin, and what they went through in the last year and a half of his life. I told her if that was the film, I was in." This documentary is the result of years of patient work, and listening carefully and spending time trying to understand and accurately present his story. And his final wish. This looks like a remarkable film.
