Trivia

At one point in the film, actor Tyler Posey mispronounces the name of Russian-American author Ayn Rand, in reference to her novel The Fountainhead. He pronounces her first name "AY-n," (as if to rhyme with "main," "bane," or "lane"), despite it's correct pronounciation being the exact same as the much more common English "Anne," (which rhymes with "man," "fan," and "can.") Whether or not this is a purposeful mistake is debatable, (as Posey's character claims not to've read Rand's novel), but seeing as his friend who has indeed read The Fountainhead fails to correct his pronounciation, it seems unlikely.

Good story and good performances...
7 March 2014 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"White Frog" really surprised me as I watched it. Why? Well, because the movie had a fairly nice story, but what really impressed me was the acting in the movie.

The story is about a young boy named Nick, who has Asperger's syndrome, whose older brother dies in a tragic accident. Not fitting into the world around him, Nick struggles to get closer to the world that his older brother lived in.

There are some really nice moments to the movie, which were nicely portrayed and executed on the screen. But the great performances from the actors and actresses really helped bring this movie to life.

I can't really claim to be familiar with the acting talent of Booboo Stewart, but he really carried this movie so nicely. But it wasn't him alone, everyone in the movie were doing great jobs. And it was also particularly nice to see Joan Chen in a movie such as this.

If you enjoy drama movies that are carried by a proper and solid story, then you definitely should check out "White Frog". And this movie easily earns a 7 out of 10 stars rating from me, no doubt about it.
