White Boy Rick (2018)

White Boy Rick is the true-to-life story of drug informant Richard Wershe, Jr. Time span is circa 1980.  Outcome was/is a life prison sentence.

This is a really intriguing story about a young man, Rick (played by Richie Merritt) who is approached by the government, to act as an informant.  The government turns their back on this kid in the end.  In between is a lot of chaos, passion and entertainment.

This is the one movie for which we would have actually appreciated more music from.  Old School.  We roller skated to that in the 70's.
