Poor Boy’s Game directed by Clement Virgo


Poor Boy’s Game explores the culture of tribalism in Halifax, played out in the story of Donnie Rose (Rossif Sutherland) and George Carvery (Danny Glover), whose son, Charles, Donnie beat into a severe retardation when both boys were 17. Finally released after a troubled stay in prison, Donnie encounters two communities divided by race — exemplified by Charles’ childhood friend, local-hero boxer Ossie Paris (Flex Alexander) and Donnie’s volatile brother Keith (Greg Bryk) — both unwilling to bury the past he helped create and move on.(imdb.com)
