May 3, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Hockey star deals with racism; lots of cursing, bullying.

August 1, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Race showed us Stephan James could be a movie star. Across The Line mints him as an actor.

April 13, 2016 | Rating: 4/5

Across the Line not only showcases some fine black actors, it delves into a topic that Hollywood is continuing to struggle with. It's a pity we struggle with these same issues in Canada, but also a point of pride that this film was made here.
