THE CAST Matthew Mc­conaughey, Richie Mer­ritt, Bel Pow­ley THE STORY Fol­low­ing in his fa­ther’s foot­steps of crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity, a young teenager em­barks on his own dodgy deal­ings af­ter go­ing un­der­cover for the FBI. THE VER­DICT This true story, set in the ’80s, fol­lows teen Rick (Mer­ritt) who gets caught up in the seedy un­der­world af­ter work­ing as an in­for­mant for the feds. He tries to stop his crooked fa­ther (Mc­conaughey) from be­ing put away be­hind bars, but his hus­tling life quickly spi­rals out of con­trol. It’s a punchy watch with stand­out per­for­mances from all the cast, es­pe­cially Mc­conaughey. CERT 15, 1HR 51 MINS, OPENS 7 DEC
