Finally the trailer of “White Boy Rick” is out and we gotta say it is mind-blowing! A true story of Richard Wershe Jr, who became the youngest FBI informant, despite being a drug kingpin and street hustler, at the age of 14!
The movie boasts an impressive ensemble of Richie Merritt, Matthew McConaughey, Bel Powley, Bruce Dern, Piper Laurie, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rory Cochrane, Jonathan Majors, RJ Cyler, Brian Tyree Henry, Taylour Paige and many more.
Based on the true life experience of a 14-year-old FBI informant and drug dealer in 1984 Detroit, the film White Boy Rick undoubtedly has moments of despair, of pain, of mourning for the families dismantled by the crack epidemic that swept through American cities in the ‘80s and ‘90s and for the lives ruined by death or imprisonment.
The trailer, however, makes the whole situation look like one extremely awesome roller-skating party.
Richie Merritt stars as the titular teen Rick, who manages to persuade his dad (Matthew McConaughey) that dealing drugs and working with the feds would probably all work out in the end. If his character only saw the trailer, man, can you blame him for wanting to believe the fantasy? The film premieres on September 14.
