  • 1986 ----- color ----- 95 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by John N. Smith; with Pat Dillon, Fabian Gibbs, Sylvie Clarke, Debbie Grant) Set to the reggae music of Jimmy Cliff, this is the bittersweet love story of Pat and Fabian, two teenagers with roots in the Caribbean who are struggling to grow up in the alien urban environment of Montreal. Their experiences of coping with school, jobs, slum landlords, and an unexpected pregnancy make for a film that is alternately hilarious and heart-rending.
