Summary
  • Based on the moving true story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe, who became an undercover informant for the FBI during the 1980s, before he was arrested for drug trafficking, abandoned by his handlers, and sentenced to life in prison
  • "A compelling if sometimes muddled true-life crime drama."--Newsday
  • "...an engrossing-enough cautionary tale, if that's what it is. It's even an entertaining one, in an unsavory kind of way."--Washington Post
  • "So the big surprise about White Boy Rick is how well the movie works. It's one thing to know a story is based on nonfiction. Being made to believe its plausibility is something else."--Boston Globe
