Here’s what director Vincent Grashaw, executive producer Joe Bilotta, and actors PJ Boudousque’ and James C. Burns had to say about social stigmas and understanding the roles.

Grashaw discusses the label of “juvenile delinquency” in relation to the film

“It’s a big grey area…who’s at fault here? How do we figure this out?” – Vincent Grashaw

Bilotta talks about Burns’ transitioning roles

“It was just like Sergeant Frank Woods got promoted…that created the immense believability.” – Joe Bilotta

Burns discusses understanding and portraying his role

“You can give ideas, you can support, but unless someone really wants to change, there’s nothing you can do about it…you really have to let folks bottom out.” – James C. Burns

Boudousque’ talks about understanding role

“…And having to deal with adult concepts, you don’t know how to communicate – it’s not because you don’t want to, it’s not because you’re angry or embarrassed, it’s because literally you haven’t been alive long enough to express something that you’re experienceing for the very first time – like guilt or grief…” – PJ Boudousque’
