In 1980's Detroit, 17 year-old Richard Wershe, Jr. allegedly ran a sophisticated inner-city drug dealing operation. Now, journalists, police, federal agents and hit men are speaking for the first time about the legend of "White Boy Rick."
Richard Wershe Jr.,
Scott M. Burnstein,
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, WHITE BOY RICK is based on the moving story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe Jr., who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers.
The DVD version includes a Special Feature, Trivia Track. It is actually a feature that starts the entire movie along with Trivia comments as it plays much like a Director's commentary instead of having audio comments playing. See more »
The bulk of this story is set in the early / mid '80s. However, Wershe Sr. tells his son that he is seeing someone about a "40 Cal". The .40 S&W cartridge debuted January 17, 1990. See more »

Wasn't really looking forward to seeing this film at first. I was intrigued to find from the very beginning the exposition and plot brought my attention straight to the screen. From beginning to end I love the one liners and the party scene and the whole family aspect and growth. Hated the ending, but it was the ending I could expect watching white boy rick from beginning to end.
