FBI’s yngste informant bliver foreviget på film

" 1980’ernes Detroit var fuld af arbejdsløshed og narko, og det er i den kontekst at Richard Wershe Jr., og kendt som White Boy Rick, blev FBI’s yngste informant. Nu er historien om White Boy Ricks storhed og fald blevet foreviget med Richie Merritt i rollen som Richard Wershe Jr. og Matthew McConaughey i rollen som hans far. Filmer giver et unikt indblik i, hvordan en blot 14-årig Wershe bliver rekrutteret som FBI-informant, men samtidig med at han hjælper med at sætte narkohandlere og korrupte politimænd bag tremmer, kommer han også selv på mere og mere dybt vand.

White Boy Rick

Raising a teenager has never been easy, or will be, but what happens in this criminal drama is too much a parent could handle. The fact that there is a true story as a basis for this film makes the things even worse. Richard Wershe Jr. is only 14 when he becomes the youngest FBI informant to work undercover in the shiny but brutal world of drug dealing. The ‘arena’ of his work is Detroit in the 1980s, during the peak of the War on Drugs. What is heart-breaking here is that the poor boy gets abandoned by his FBI ‘colleagues’ at some point. The inconsolable father, Richard Wershe, can do nothing to save the teenager. Sent to prison for the rest of his life, Rick learns a painful truth about people - sometimes you get betrayed by those from whom you expect it the least.
