White Boy Rick

Matthew McConaughey, Bruce Dern, Eddie Marsan, and Jennifer Jason Leigh star in Demange’s fact-based crime drama about a 1980s-era petty hustler who became a drug boss, then FBI informant, all before the age of 16. Making brilliant use of the 1980s Detroit setting and a sensational performance from Merritt as the titular Rick, the film acts as a cautionary tale about the consequences of people and governments seeking simple solutions to complex problems.
