Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
White Boy Rick is based on a true story of a drug dealing gun totting 15 year old, dragged deep into a world of crime by the FBI. It’s solid stuff – with Matthew McConaughey delivering yet another strong performance. But for all it’s grit and dirt it’s the very workman like delivery that lets the film down. In more solid hands this could have been a really interesting film but as it is it’s more diverting than essential.
