Storyline

Jamaican-Canadian emergency room nurse Jude is a single mother whose primary focus in life is her twelve year old son Ciel, that is when she isn't dealing with her incurable sickle cell disease, which will probably be the cause of her eventual death. Like his mother, Ciel is a born caregiver, whose love of music, magic and new age mysticism is in large part a way to provide his mother love and protection, especially against her illness. Regardless, Jude relates to Ciel as if she isn't sick, such as planning to take him back to Jamaica someday so that he can have a better understanding of his heritage. And Ciel hopes that his mother's belief that the ones you love never go away is true. Into their lives comes Silence, an underground fighter. He and Jude meet when he comes into the hospital due to a fighting injury. Silence is dealing with his own issues, most notably taking over the Exodus boxing club after the death of his mentor and the club's owner, Horace. Silence learns that ... Written by Huggo

Toronto International Film Festival HIT
7 September 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Buzz is on for NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY. Enchanting. Exquisite Performances. Fantastic soundtrack. Assured. Personal. Magical. Heartfelt. Daring. Unique. Gorgeously crafted feature-directing debut. NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY explores the connections between the healer, the warrior and the child with lyricism, style and stunning cinematography. The Toronto International Programmer Jesse Wente says the film "touches upon themes of faith and destiny while remaining unabashedly romantic". Jennie Punter from The Globe and Mail says, "One of the most beautiful and accomplished films to come out of the Canadian Film Centre". NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY is Charles Officer's coming out party as Canada's most visionary filmmaker... and what a party it is!
