FilmView – Billy Boy Coming to the State

By Chris Murphy
Modesto’s Robert Ulrich has a new film coming to the big screen. “Billy Boy” will be opening in ten cities across the USA and Modesto is one of them. Co-produced with his son Cooper Ulrich and Blake and Michael Jenner, the film follows a young boy named Billy Forsetti, played by Blake Jenner, who spends his evenings committing crimes and stealing cars with his friends. But after one of his friends is found dead, Billy attempts to leave his dangerous life behind him. Melissa Benoist (“Supergirl”) stars as Billy’s girlfriend Jennifer who tries to help him change the course of his life.

“BILLY BOY has been a passion project from the start. Seeing it come to fruition has been incredible. It’s a dark movie – a true cautionary tale.” explains Robert Ulrich. Actor Blake Jenner makes his writing debut with the thriller “Billy Boy” and Jenner and Benoist crowdfunded help pay for the movie. This is truly a film they are passionate about and it will be a treat to see this film at the State Theatre on June 15th at 8:30 am and 9:30 pm. The film continues through the next week.
