The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete (Lionsgate, 2013)
The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete is a coming-of-age story focused around two boys in the inner city of Brooklyn. Abandoned by their mothers, Mister and Pete must learn to survive on their own in the projects, constantly dodging Child Protective Services.
Newcomers Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon deliver stunning performances as the sharp-tongued Mister and the wide-eyed Pete. Their heart-wrenching story brings focus to the collateral damage suffered by those left behind and whose options gradually run out. Last month Michelle Obama hosted a discussion with education stakeholders about the challenges and best practices regarding education access in underserved communities. As part of the event, guests participated in a screening of The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete.
