(special thanks to Film Movement for providing me with a screener!)

Nurse. Fighter. Boy is a terribly earnest Canadian film about three black people living in Toronto. Presumably they are referred to as African-Canadian, but I hate terms like that, so I'll just stick with black.

The nurse of the title is a single mother raising a twelve-year-old son (the boy). During the course of her job she meets a boxer (the fighter), who was injured in a scuffle. She treats him and later the two bump into each other and start a relationship. Looming in the background are her sickle cell disease and his concerns about losing his boxing club. The boy meantime floats around doing odd bits of magic, hanging out with the neighbor girl and listening to music.

And that's... really about it. There's not that much to this movie or the story. It's not a bad film by any means, but it's very dull. I think it would've made for a stronger movie had the boy been pushed out to the background and had the story focused on the nurse and the fighter and their budding relationship. That would've been far more compelling than this, which is basically just a melodrama.

== Short Film ==

This disc's short film is "Afterglow", a Swiss film about a woman, her daughter and her dead husband's brother. It shows how a family can fall apart following a death and what the fallout of that can be.

It was about as entertaining as the main feature, which isn't saying much. Like the main feature, it wasn't bad or anything, but it was fairly dull. Really, there was disappointment all around.

great movie if you can catch the essence of it and understand the role of the little details that most people wouldn't catch. Especially the music they used.

This film is what I wish I could see more of when it comes to black love on the big screen. It was simple and sweet and nobody in the relationship was struck. Karen LeBlanc I will be looking out for her she stood out in a good cast. Clark Johnson as a sensitive, sexy male lead he needs more roles that show this side. The "Boy" in the film was superb and hope to see him in some non stereotypical roles as he grows into manhood. The movie was uneven in that sometimes the script seem to leave the actors hanging but on the whole I would watch this again and I recommend it. Bravo!

Good acting by all. No fluffy b.s. here. Bought because I'm a Clark Johnson fan, but the entire cast was good. Hope to see all three main actors in other things in the future.

A fine, beautiful, and thoughtful film which sets its tone using both gritty downbeat and etherial notes at the same time. Some very very exceptional music. A film you can thoroughly fall-into on a lonely weekend night.
