With brilliant colors that saturate the screen and a riveting soundtrack combining gospel, soul, and roots reggae, Nurse.Fighter.Boy might possibly be unlike any film you’ve ever seen. It is also not your typical urban love story as it seeks to explore the archetypal characters of nurturer, warrior, and child using the pains of real life to realize those characters. Beautifully shot in Toronto by director Charles Officer, Nurse.Fighter.Boy garnered 10 Genie Award nominations in April 2010 including Best Motion Picture, Best Actress (Karen Leblanc), Best Actor (Clark Johnson, most known for his current stint on HBO’s The Wire), and Best Original Screenplay (the Genies are Canada’s premiere motion picture and television awards bestowed by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.)
