Description

An adaptation of Catherine Hernandez’s 2017 novel Scarborough, the film centres on the coming of age of Bing (Liam Diaz), Sylvie (Essence Fox) and Laura (Anna Claire Beitel), three young children in a low-income neighbourhood in the Scarborough district of Toronto, as they learn the value of community, passion and resilience over the course of a school year. The cast also includes Aliya Kanani as Ms. Hina, a community literacy worker who becomes a mentor to the three children. Fun fact: the film was shot primarily in the Galloway Road neighbourhood of Scarborough. **Please note that there is no Fox member/subscriber or other discounted adult pricing for Movies for Mommies screenings. Films are shown with open captions (when possible), at a lower volume and with auditorium lights half lit.
