A new trailer has been released for the indie drama THE INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER AND PETE starring Jennifer Hudson, about two boys struggling to survive on their own against all odds in a sweltering summer in New York City. THE INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER AND PETE, directed by George Tillman, Jr., will be released in theaters on October 11, 2013.
During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s ( Skylan Brooks) hard-living mother (Jennifer Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete (Ethan 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.
