  • 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.

  • A well intentioned but pervasively uneven piece of work...

  • The film is carried completely by the performances; the nurse and the fighter exchange few words, for example, but their mutual attraction is conveyed perfectly by the actors.
