The Inevitable Defeat of Mister u0026 Pete: Directed by George Tillman Jr.. With Skylan Brooks, Ethan Dizon, Jennifer Hudson, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. A coming-of-age story about two inner city boys who are left to fend for themselves over the summer after their mothers are taken away by the authorities.

“I saw this film at Sundance and the cast and crew got about four standing ovations. People who raved about Fruitvale said this film tops it. This a great film! This film is a cross between Spike Leeu0026#39;s Clockers (1995) and Hirokazu Koreedau0026#39;s Nobody Knows (2004), with a bit of Fresh (1994) mixed in. Based on a true story, Nobody Knows portrays siblings who are abandoned by their mother and forced to survive on their own. Resiliency is a trait of many urban kids. Even in tragedy they were just kids. Mister and Pete doesnu0026#39;t try to let the audience u0026quot;off the hooku0026quot;. The performances pull you in, or at least it did for me.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI was surprised to see how low the ratings were for this film.”
