White Frog Director On the Movie, New Still
‘White Frog’ director, Quentin Lee, spoke to Gay.net about the movie and shed a bit more light on what the story was about. We also got a new still of Tyler and Boo Boo Stewart.
GAY.NET: What is White Frog about?
Quentin Lee: White Frog is an emotional teen drama about a 15-year-old boy (Booboo Stewart) with Asperger’s who has to step up for himself and his family after his beloved older brother (Harry Shum Jr.) dies unexpectedly. White Frog is about being different and how we come to terms with difference, whether you are gay, Asian or have Asperger’s.
So how’s White Frog different from all the gay or “minority-themed” movies out there?
White Frog is very much a gateway movie about dealing with difference for people on both coasts, in the red states and in even more conservative countries. It will probably be my broadest and first “PG” movie about very unique characters. Every one of my past features was either R-rated or unrated. With White Frog, I’ve strived to make an emotional and entertaining movie with both veteran and up-and-coming talents. So I’m really excited about having new audiences discover my work.
