In this adaptation of the breathtaking novel by Catherine Hernandez, the rich interior lives of three children collide and unfurl over the course of one school year as they navigate the throes of institutional violence and inequality. Boasting revelatory performances from its young cast and a raw kineticism that thrusts audiences into the chaos of the children's ever-changing world, this unflinching but hopeful drama depicts the capacity for great triumph and great tragedy on the periphery of unassuming suburbs. The runner-up for the TIFF People's Choice Award in 2021, Scarborough found major success at the 2022 Canadian Screen Awards, earning eight wins including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Screenings at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
