The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete Synopsis
From Codeblack Films and Lionsgate. 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.

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete is a beautifully observed and tremendously moving film about salvation through friendship and the way transformation sometimes can happen just by holding on long enough. Director George Tillman, Jr. draws indelible performances from 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, all led by Ethan Dizon and Skylan Brooks in a stunning breakout performance as Mister. The film also features new music by Alicia Keys.Codeblack Films and Lionsgate present an iDeal Partners / State Street production in association with Floren Shieh Productions / Archer Gray Productions / Cherry Sky Films / AKW Productions.

There's a myth about Sundance glamour, mostly based on red carpet photos of celebrities in fur hats, or maybe press releases about how much fun everyone had sipping complimentary cocktails at a party. And yes, there's plenty of that happening around here right now, but I'm seeing almost none of it

Lost's Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Joins The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete Lost's Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Joins The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete
We haven't seen much of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje since his departure from Lost. His role as Mr. Eko is likely to be the part he's most associated with, though he has made a few other small screen appearances since his character was written off the ABC drama series in its second season, way back in 2006. And now it looks like he's joining the cast of The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, State Street Pictures and iDeal Partners' drama.
