SUBUR­BICON

Metro Canada (Ottawa) - - Life -

Racial ten­sions, rather than nat­u­ral dis­as­ters, are what rip peo­ple apart in Subur­bicon, set in idyl­lic 1950s sub­ur­bia.

The white neigh­bour­hood ex­plodes in racial vi­o­lence when a black fam­ily moves in, a plot point in­spired by a real in­ci­dent in Le­vit­town, Pa., in 1957.
