Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, WHITE BOY RICK is based on the moving true 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 and sentenced to life in prison.

ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg [Thomas Mann], a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl [RJ Cyler], with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a “co-worker” than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom [Connie Britton] insists he spend time with Rachel [Olivia Cooke] – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer – he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.
