If you want an action packed, sentimental, tragic story then this film is for you. The film “White Boy Rick” directed by Yann Demange is just a masterpiece, whether it be because of the action between drug and gun dealers or the fact that the FBI had Richard Wershe Jr., the main character that the movie is based on, sell drugs to try and bust major drug lords in Detroit. Richard Wershe Jr. was a teenager who’s dad was an illegal gun dealer who eventually got Richard to sell guns with accessories on them to drug lords. The movies main focus is the story of how Richard’s actions got him locked up for 34 years. He spent more life in prison than he has on the outside world, he recently just got out and is telling his side of the story. It really is a great film that deserves more credit than it got.
