Jennifer Hudson in "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete" Opened ABFF 2013

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, from Codeblack Films, a LIONSGATE® company, opened ABFF 2013 -  American Black Film Festival, on June 19th.  A very moving film, we laughed and cried.  Sniffles all throughout the theater, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. The film is amazing.

The film features a stellar cast including Skylan Brooks, Ethan Dizon, Jordin Sparks (Sparkle), Jeffrey Wright (Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World) with Anthony Mackie (Pain & Gain, The Hurt Locker) and Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Hudson ("Smash," Sex and the City 2, Dreamgirls). The film, directed by George Tillman, Jr. (Notorious, Soul Food), was co-executive produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning singer Alicia Keys. This unique and affecting film is a coming of age story about two boys trying to survive the summer in their Brooklyn housing projects without parental supervision.

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete: Two young boys in Brooklyn are left to fend for themselves during a summer after they are abandoned by their parents. "Obviously, we're really exited about it," Jeff Friday, Founder of The American Black Film Festival says. "It's the opening-night film and stars Jennifer Hudson, Jeffrey Wright, and Anthony Mackie. Alicia Keys is one of the executive producers. Great film."
