Three children forge a bond, pure and strong in the face of adversity. Bing is a kid with a big imagination, a kind heart, and a father who refuses to address his mental health struggles. Sylvie has a younger brother who doesn’t know how to communicate with the world and a mother desperately trying to reach him. When Bing and Sylvie become fixtures at the local literacy center, under the loving watch of Ms. Hina, they meet Laura, whose neglectful parents don’t notice she is turning their eviction notices into a family of paper ducks. This quietly stirring film grants us the chance to observe the world from the children’s perspective: allowing curiosity to guide them rather than shame, helping each other unquestioningly, and not being afraid to see the world as a wondrous place to play. SCARBOROUGH—tender and tough in a reflection of life itself—invites us to reconnect with that time in our lives when we were still malleable. —J.H.
