Not What I Remember
21 March 2017 | by zinou-95849See all my reviews

I grew up in Cole Harbour. The racial tension that exists or has existed at Cole Harbour High(school this is based on) between white kids from Eastern Passage and black kids from North Preston is very well known here. I'm old enough to have witnessed a time when racism was pretty overt everywhere and I certainly remember the "race riot" and subsequent other racial incidents that broke out at Cole Harbour High. Although I wasn't personally involved.

Now I totally understand and forgive the film for having to be adapted to modern day for budgetary reasons. However I cannot give the film the praise I would like to. Little X definitely does a good job directing. The acting is average to sub par at best, although I do give a special nod to Shamier Anderson and Jeremiah Sparks for bringing some sense of authenticity to the cast. The biggest issue I have is with the script.

It just doesn't depict race relations in a way that resembles reality. It lacks depth and nuance which is apparent to anyone with any real experience living here. I don't need to spoil the story to say that the white characters are portrayed as very one dimensional and it depicts black characters as reacting to, or on the defense to white racism. This just isn't the way it really was. Black students involved were not victims at all, but instead equal participants/antagonists to the foolishness. The filmmakers did make some effort as to not come off as totally biased but in the end it fails. Sadly.
