'Snitch' -- 3 stars

<b>PG-13; 1:56 running time</b><br><br>
"Snitch" is shrewd in its balancing of our sympathies. Set in Missouri but shot in Shreveport, La., the movie (co-written by Waugh, with Justin Haythe) gets right to it, with the Drug Enforcement Administration sting operation and arrest of 18-year-old Jason (Rafi Gavron), whose drug-dealer friend strong-arms him into accepting a shipment of a big box of Ecstasy. The feds are ready and waiting, and Jason lands in the clink. (The script implies that Jason's misjudgment is the result of acting-out over his parents' divorce.) -- Michael Phillips<br><br><a href=http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/movies/sc-mov-0220-snitch-20130221,0,974953.column>Read the full "Snitch" movie review</a>
