Critic Reviews for Nurse.Fighter.Boy
This risky, rewarding drama blends emotional naturalism with a formal style in the story of its three titular characters -- a young Jamaican-Canadian mother with sickle-cell anemia, an ex-boxer looking for a human connection and a 12-year-old boy.
Strong performances and striking cinematography help this first film by Toronto's Charles Officer move with more grace than its heavy-going storyline would have normally allowed.
Audience Reviews for Nurse.Fighter.Boy
Between a 6/10 and 7/10, the puzzlingly punctuated title is a tip-off that characters here are to be taken with several grains of mythopoeic salt. In the end, things wind down in an overly conventional way. But taken on the level of urban fable, though, the movie is a satisfyingly soulful exploration of the African diaspora and its beautiful discontents.
