Based on a true story, the movie White Boy Rick is about a teenager who went undercover and became an FBI informant during the 1980s. Eventually, though, he became a drug dealer himself and wound up in prison for 30 years. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Dern, and newcomer Richie Merritt as the title character. The movie’s getting a lot of good pre-release buzz, especially now that the trailer’s out, and producer Jeff Robinov says he’s extremely proud of the movie they’ve made.
