We are only one day away from the official premiere of one of the season most critically-acclaimed films, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete. Yay!!! Can you feel the excitement in the air!? I’ve heard nothing but good things about this film. And although Mister & Pete features a fantastic cast which includes Jordin Sparks, Golden Globe®” and Emmy®” Award winner Jeffrey Wright, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Anthony Mackie, and Golden Globe®” and Academy Award®” winner Jennifer Hudson, I’m looking forward to seeing what the two central characters, Skylan Brooks (Mister) and Ethan Dizon (Pete) have to offer. Movie critics alike have given these two the lion’s share of the film’s praise so I can’t wait to see what happens when the director yells “ACTION!”
Here’s a little bit about the film:
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.
This sounds like a wonderfully powerful film and I can’t wait for opening night. So, why wait any longer…? Tonight I will be attending a pre-screening for Mister & Pete at AMC Phipps Plaza in Atlanta, AND, I will be bringing you candid-captures LIVE from the event!
