The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete

Directors: George Tillman, Jr.
118 min
Black Perspectives

During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s hard-living mother (Jennifer Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete alone to forage for food while dodging child protective services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete is a beautifully observed and tremendously moving film about salvation through friendship and the way transformation sometimes can happen just by holding on long enough.
