Brother (15)

15

Brother leaves you spellbound and grateful. Grateful for a filmmaker who cares deeply about the interior lives of Black people. And the light that shines within them’ – The Playlist

Elapsing across three timelines, from childhood to adolescence and onto young adulthood, Brother explores the fluctuating relationship between two Jamaican-Canadian brothers, united by love but drawn apart by circumstances. Francis (Aaron Pierre), the older sibling, is a pillar of the local community. Everyone – from the little kids riding their bikes in the street to the workers at the corner shop – knows who he is and is charmed by his helpful, easygoing demeanour. Michael (Lamar Johnson), by contrast, tries his hardest to be invisible, putting on his headphones and blocking out the world around him. The pair are sometimes close, sometimes estranged, particularly after Francis drops out of high school to pursue a career in music, leaving Michael alone in their previously shared bunk beds. It is only when the brothers become witnesses in a shooting that the course of their lives changes forever.
