Has anyone here seen the movie White Frog? I found it on Netflix. What did you think of the Aspie teen in the movie?

Do you get Netflix in the UK?
White Frog is about a 15 year old boy in southern California, who has Aspergers. His older brother worked with him to overcome some of his AS behaviors. Early in the movie the older brother dies. Unknown to everyone, the older brother Chaz is secretly gay and is having an affair with his best friend Randy. Randy eventually takes Chaz' role as Nick's mentor. The movie has some gay themes but nothing explicite.
The movie was made in 2012.

I haven't heard about it either (not that that's really saying anything :wink:) Do you know what film company produced it? And do you happen to know what it's rated? It sounds like it could be interesting.

This is actually the first I've heard about it. I'm interested in movies about ASD, though, so I'll have to check it out. Thanks, Danimal! :)

White Frog was produced under Wentertainment Productions, Chris Lee Productions. Directed by Quentin Lee. Release date March 8, 2012. 93 minutes long. I didn't see a rating, but I would guess PG.
