Poor Boy's Game

Dir. Clement Virgo. Canada , 2007. 102 Mins.Racial tension in an unusual setting and a quiet, authoritative voice pack a surprising punch in Poor Boy's Game, a new film from Afro-Canadian filmmaker Clement Virgo. Though framed around a grudge match in the boxing ring, the film has a considerably broader scope than the canvas and ropes. The intimate drama turns on an act of violence, its social-political echoes and issues of redemption and forgiveness.
