Canadian director Clement Virgo’s (Rude) gorgeous, multi award-winning adaptation of David Chariandy’s 2017 novel follows two brothers coming of age in 1990s Scarborough, Toronto, where they must reconcile their dreams and expectations with the violence that surrounds them.

Brothers Francis (British actor Aaron Pierre – The Underground Railroad) and Michael (Lamar Johnson), the sons of Caribbean immigrants, are inseparable. As they mature into young men, Michael looks to the older Francis for guidance. But during the sweltering summer of 1991, escalating tensions set off a series of events that change their lives forever.

Exploring masculinity, identity, family and loss, propelled by the beats of Toronto’s early hip hop scene, Brother is a rich, textured and vital story about sibling bonds, community resilience, and the irrepressible power of music.
