“Unique and uplifting…Part coming-of-age story, part survival story” (IndieWire), The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete arrives on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet), Digital HD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View February 4 from Codeblack Films and Lionsgate Home Entertainment. An official selection at the Sundance Film Festival, the American Black Film Festival and the Chicago Film Festival, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete was hailed as a “beautiful…touching melodrama” (New York Times). The film features an outstanding ensemble cast including 2007 “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks (Sparkle), *Golden Globe® and Emmy® winner Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World), with Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) and Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winner Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls, 2006) in a “gripping, fearless performance,” (Access Hollywood), and presents up-and-coming talents Skylan Brooks (General Education) and Ethan Dizon (upcoming Get a Job) as Mister and Pete. The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete is the compelling and emotional story of two inner city kids’ quest for survival and salvation through friendship.
One summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s hard-living mother is apprehended by the police, leaving him and 9-year-old Pete to survive alone while dodging Child Protective Services. Faced with more than any child should be expected to bear, Mister is an unstoppable force against all the challenges and dangers of life in the Brooklyn projects. But what really keeps Mister and Pete in the survival game is Mister’s vulnerability rather than his larger-than-life attitude.
