Miami’s own Blake Jenner is the star, scenarist and co-producer of this absorbing drama about a disenfranchised young man’s struggle to balance the temptations of crime with his ambitions for a better future. Billy Forsetti (Jenner) came of age with a dearth of prospects and an abundance of angst. His friends introduce him to the fast thrills and easy money of carjacking, while a budding romance plants in Billy’s mind the possibility of a different life, one grounded in love, faith and legit work.
Sensitively directed by Jenner’s Glee cohort Bradley Buecker, Juvenile is a tale of youth in peril and a society that can’t afford to let its citizens slip between the cracks.
