Dark Indie Flick boasts a stellar cast and a compelling story
26 January 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"Whiteboy" is a must-see movie that tells a coming-of-age story in a brutally honest and realistic way. Anyone who grew up in the suburbs can identify with Brian Lovero, a good-natured kid, who finds himself on the road to self-destruction. There are a smorgasboard of everyday topics being discussed: racism, abusive relationships, police brutality, drug use/selling, loss of a parent, etc. "Whiteboy" doesn't supply the answers, but rather chooses to put the topics out there for discussion. Whether you agree or disagree with the characters is up to the viewer. John Marino does a fine job of telling a fragmented story that is as complicated as it is compelling. He has an even finer eye for talent as "Whiteboy" boasts a first-rate cast, from up and coming hunk Johnny Green to rising film star Alison Lohman (Big Fish, Matchstick Men). Add in poignant, strong and endearing performances by vets such as David Proval (the Sopranos) and Allen Garfield as well as newcomers like rap star WC of the Westside Connection supergroup and young Jonathan Avildsen and you have a strong, familiar-faced cast that you don't normally find in indie movies at this level.
