(2012, USA) Directed by Quentin Lee, with Booboo Stewart, Joan Chen, Harry Shum Jr., Gregg Sulkin, Kelly Hu, and Tyler Posey [93 min, English, Not Rated]
After the death of his popular brother Chaz (Harry Shum Jr.), Nick (BooBoo Stewart), who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, struggles to carry on. Nick’s parents have their own problems coping with the loss, but Chaz’s best friend Randy (Gregg Sulkin) takes Nick under his wing. As Chaz’s family comes to understand his secret life, they will be forced to reconcile the boy they thought they knew with the man he really was.  WHITE FROG is a universal story of the power of family, friendship and love that will appeal to audiences in the same way as ORDINARY PEOPLE and STAND BY ME.
