A documentary which follows the final days of Robin Williams has been given a release date in the UK.

The Hollywood actor took his own life in 2016 at the age of 16. After his death it was revealed he had been suffering from Lewy Body Dementia.

In the film Robin’s Wish we will see interviews from his widow, Susan Schnieder Williams and director Shawn Levy who was working with the star during the final months of his life on the family movie

Speaking about her late husband’s illness Susan told Entertainment Weekly: “Armed with the name of a brain disease I’d never heard of, I set out on a mission to understand it, and that led me down my unchosen path of advocacy.

“With invaluable help from leading medical experts, I saw that what Robin and I had gone through, finally made sense — our experience matched up with the science.

“And what I discovered along the way was bigger than me and bigger than Robin. The full story was revealed during the making of this film, and it holds the truth that Robin and I had been searching for.”

Robin’s Wish will be available to download from iTunes, Amazon, Sky Store and other streaming services from January 4, 2021.
