The Codeblack/Lionsgate Film presentation of “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete” is a tear jerker! The film is a take on the reality of life in the inner city for many children. It’s the tale of two kids who are left to fend for themselves over the summer after their mothers are taken away by the authorities. Sylan Brooks exquisitely plays Mister and Ethan Dizon gives a dazzling performance as Pete.
Written by George Tillman, Jr., The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete also stars Anthony Mackie, Jennifer Hudson, Jordan Sparks, Academy Award winner Jeffrey Wright, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Alicia Keys is the executive producer of the Rated-R drama, which arrives in theatres on Friday, October 11, 2013. “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete” is an iDeal Partners/State Street production in association with Floren Shieh/Archer Gray/Cherry Sky Films/AKW Productions.
