See Trailer And Poster For The The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete
A poster and trailer have been released for the upcoming Black film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete. The film, which premiered at the Sundance film festival earlier this year, stars Skylan Brooks (Mister), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agba, Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Mackie, Jordin Sparks, and Jeffrey Wright.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s (Brooks) hard-living mother (Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete (Dizon) alone to forage for food while dodging child protective services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. Faced with more than any child can be expected to bear, the resourceful Mister nevertheless feels he is an unstoppable force against seemingly unmovable obstacles. But what really keeps the pair in the survival game is much more Mister’s vulnerability than his larger-than-life attitude.
